Wooden Folk Art Crow

About the Item

Richly textured with whimsical appeal, this late 20th century wooden crow is a delightful example of naive American sculpture. Poised mid-caw, it is hard to tell whether this crow has just landed or is ready to burst into flight. As though life materialized from a pile of scrap wood and metal, it has a palpable vitality and defiant exuberance.
