Early To MID 20th C. Hand Carved Folk Art Roaring Lion, Walnut, Naive Primitive
This unique sculpture appears to be of walnut, found in the US and once part of a collection owned by retired folk art & ethnographic arts dealer, without provenance. It is suspected of being carved prior to WWII, perhaps much earlier. The carver was clearly unschooled in figure study and just picked up his pocket-knive and tools thru self motivation. The lion is appealing with the little eyes, the wide open mouth with teeth, the parallel lines of the mane and tuft of hair on the forward reaching tail. The mane, eyebrows, tuft on tail and teeth were painted in a blonde/gold color, along with black. It measures about 10 1/4″ L x 4 3/4″ H x 4 W and weighs approx 1 lb 4 oz.
