A hand carved and painted wooden Loon with a young Chick resting on its back, as would be viewed in the wild.
Wood used is similar to that of the Tupelo Tree, whereas the carving itself is of 1 piece.
On the bottom base is stamped: "Canadian Wildlife," with a Loon displayed in its center, circa 1970s-'80s.
The original design was inspired by Jim Harkness's Wood Decoys and set to the Canadian Wildlife "Collection" art works.
Product Quantity: Only 1 item in stock.
Condition: Very Good, may be minor wear consistent with age and history. There has been in the past updates to the aging surface for which time has changed. Where once moisture was, now resides a shrinking matrix of wood cells topped by paint contributable to wear. Nearly all painted areas hold the original artist’s strokes and dabs, but with wood it's a constant changing medium. Which possibly last for centuries if properly kept, including those before mentioned updates; where paint was needed and reapplied however so discretely.
The sculpture shows having been cared for in time and without seen damage to the wood itself, i.e. chips, scratches, checks or cracks, see photos.
