Wide Mouthed, Pink Skinned Bill Ward Folk Art Head Signed

Regular price $100.00

I've found nothing about the Bill Ward who signed this, but a pretty great carved head I think it is, reminding me some of the work of Ernie Richardson (Damascus, VA) and with a bit of Shields Landon Jones about it, too-- especially the very wide mouth! Very pink skin, very blue eyes, and with an intensity and complexity of expression that feels very of the moment to me.

7 3/8 x 3 3/4 x 3 1/2 d. 2nd half 20th c. Signed on the underside and in very good condition.
