Folk art is one of the purest expressions of human emotion, and this incredible one-of-a-kind wooden snake shows it beautifully.
As you can see, the vintage snake is a rattler and has been made from a single piece of wood.
It appears that the only actually carving done to the snake is to its head and rattle. The artist likely found the piece of wood, saw its potentially snake-like shape and chose to embellish it slightly to reflect his personal feeling.
If you look closely, you can make out the snake's head and mouth. The tip of the tail features deeply carved hash marks which give it the appearance of a rattle.
The wood is incredibly textural, with a deep yet smooth grain. It has oxidized nicely over the years, giving it a medium-brown, umber coloring.
It remains in excellent vintage condition and will make a provocative and rich addition to any eclectic collection.
