Vintage Maroon Sculptural Wall Hanging Found Object Melbourne 1940s



Unique, original and very aesthetically pleasing. This piece seems to stimulate communication with the subconscious - it's arresting and absorbing, with totemic overtones, like some kind of midcentury all-seeing owl-deity. Charles and Ray Eames would have loved this. It's a very old fibreglass rowing, crew or sculling seat, still attached to its original wooden glides and mounted for wall hanging. It makes a beautiful and original decorative piece. The colour is rich, deep and warm with beautiful patina and character. It's in clean condition, with a layer of wax to preserve the rich tone.
