One of a kind, hand carved Art Nouveau Style Nude Woman Wood Carving from block of very heavy wood. Great, authentic, old patina but no clues to it's actual age.
This carving would make a superb bookend because the wood is so dense that it's extremely heavy. It's probably even sturdy enough to face forward so that the carving can be more easily enjoyed than if it faces to the side.
Art Nouveau style influenced hand carved nude woman figure features a partial-side-view of a nude woman with upraised arms with hair that appears to be as long as her full height wrapping around her body.
Measures 8.5 x 6 x 2.5 inches
This small block of wood shows large circular saw marks on back, side & ends. Not extremely detailed – probably due to the texture and hardness of the wood. This relatively small block of wood weighs FIVE pounds.
Purchased at an estate liquidation, when I first picked it up, I thought it was concrete made to look like wood.
Note in photos - some transferred paint and a water stain on the back that does not show on the front.
