Stylized Art Deco Carved Bust of Aviator

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This wonderful bust is unsigned, but the artist was obviously highly skilled. The aviator is tilted back, perhaps in a "take off" mode. The head gear is stained darker than the face, but both display a lovely polished surface. There are cracks through the wood, as shown. These come from natural dryness of the wood, and we have opted to leave them as found.
