Hand-Carved Studio Mesquite Stele in the Style of J. B. Blunk, circa 1970



An interesting twisted column carved from a single piece of Mesquite in the reductive style of J. B. Blunk. From an estate located in the California mid coast possibly from an artist's studio in the Santa Cruz area. This obelisk is beautifully surfaced which accentuates the intrinsic characteristics of the Mesquite. It stands pinned to a simple iron plate base. In excellent condition.
