Larger Than Life Extravagant Folk Art Sculpture


Outrageous larger than life piece of Folk Art painstakingly composed of found objects such as sea shells, beads, toys, vintage jewelry buttons, and bottle caps (to name a few). There is an obvious reference to Eve and snake, that the artist seems to be celebrating and perhaps womanhood and life itself. Signed indistinctly on a seashell.
