Painted Bone Fetish Assemblage Sculpture from Kansas Yard Show


Most unusual bone sculpture assembled of a cow skull with two spires of back bones with wood stick joiner. The piece is painted with red and black markings creating eyes and faces in abstract forms. A mystery piece by an unknown folk artist. The front of the skull piece has an added element that slots in. This is an evocative one of a kind piece of Folk Art.
