Super Hand Carved Treen Figure, Butcher With A Bloody Apron, Brienz 2003, 31cm:
This is a beautifully carved wooden figure of a man, a butcher or maybe even a slaughterman. He is painted in a light wash, with a white apron spattered with blood. The figure is a part of a larger collection, many marked and dated to the Swiss Tyrol, this one Brienz 2003, Brienz is a centre for carvers. In general the carvings are mostly in the Black Forest style, I assume that the wood carver was either from that area, or a follower of the style. This is a beautiful detailed model, a simple but effective shape, and a somewhat angular finish.The model is 31 cm high and10 cm across the base.
