This Is ,By Far ,the RAREST Hand Carved Lion That I Have Ever Seen Or owned !!!! I doubt if you'll ever see another like it or even close !! It was Hand Carved in the Early 1800's, From a Burled Knot Of Tiger Maple Wood ,and it has the Grains of Tiger Maple, Birds Eye Maple, and Burled Maple Wood. It is an American Folk Art Masterpiece !!!!!! Burled ,Maple Wood is among the Hardest Woods known ,and is Virtually Impossible to Carve with out Breaking or Popping a Hairline. This striking Example was done entirely by Hand ,and with hand Tools. it must have taken Months to Complete . The Subject is very unusual, it is a Prone Lion, Wrestling a Large Snake ,most likely an Constrictor of some sort. The Wood has aged into a Gorgeous ,Very Stunning, Eye Catching Example ,and is second to none Done in any Wood .It is an Obvious " One Of A Kind" ,and it is worth a small fortune. It has NO restorations of any kind. it has a Central Pennsylvania origin. If you Collect American Folk Art ,this is a Keystone Piece for you to go after. it is even better to see in person ,and will be the start of many Conversations. It measures 16 1/2" long x about 9" high. I'm selling ti with , and only one Penny to start. Insured shipping in the US only is 18.85. Payment is due in 3 Days.
