For your consideration, an exceptional carved California Manzanita root sculpture portraying a nude figure, most probably circa 1950’s-1970’s, possibly of an earlier vintage. The fine unsigned work, in excellent vintage condition with no damage or repairs, stands an impressive 17” tall on its 9” diameter pine base, and is 6 ¼” x 4” wide. The unsigned stained wood sculpture is noteworthy for its modernist aesthetics, dynamic design and elegant folk art details; there is an almost Oriental feeling to the piece, very asymmetrical in its presence, with both spiritual and libertine qualities. This uniquely charming and unusual work was acquired in Northern California. It has an artful vibe and quietly monumental presence and shows well in every environment and setting, from Traditional, to modern Mid-Century.
