American Folk Art Snake and Wood Spirits Walking Stick, Early 20th Century

About

An intriguing early 20th century American folk carved walking stick, mounted as a sculpture. Carved from a single section of gnarled hardwood in the form of a snake with two wood spirits to the body. The snake head carved masterfully with an open mouth and inset tongue. The eyes of inset ruby glass. The wood spirit faces almost grotesque, yet with their own charm. With a metal cap. Mounted on a custom black metal stand.
