Hand Painted Wood Folk Art Horse Sculpture

$6,500

About

An incredible, unusual, hand-painted-wood horse sculpture. A semi-knock-down construction, six plywood appendages, including a tail of real horse hair, attach to the central rolling cart "torso". Imaginatively conceived and created, a wonderfully curious, playful element seemingly from some equestrian or agrarian environment. The visible wood wheels being just for show, the whole piece does roll on hidden casters. A fantastic, unexpected Americana folk art element.
