Wood Flying Canada Goose Folk Sculpture

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Flying Canada goose carving with extended neck and legs pulled up in the back.
There is a hole in the bottom where it was attached and used as a weathervane or trade sign. It had wings that would have slotted into the sides and were pegged. Without the wings the goose becomes more abstracted with negative space. The oxidized greyed surface is nicely textured from shrinkage.
The piece comes with a minimal wall bracket that allows it to float out from a wall invisibly. A base can be provided on request.
