Carved Wood Folk Art Girl



Harold Ibach and his wife were not able to have children but Harold could carve so he made an imaginary daughter he called Kitty. Kitty was carved and pieced of wood and meticulously painted. The turned head animated the girl and he added bows to her dress and hair and even red jewels. She is all smiles as she had a good home and then went to a collection for 30 years. Harold Ibach had a printing business and also had time to make wooden toy cars and harvester toys. Some years later he carved a larger sister Rene to go with Kitty, but she ran away. Several newspaper articles about the carving of Kitty exist from newspapers from Rochester, MN.
