Vintage carved wood sculpture of an eagle in very dramatic 'over-the-shoulder' pose, ca. 1960-70, 18" tall, signed. Created at the famed St. Jean-Port Jolie, Quebec, artist colony. Full of very intricate detail; just look at those steely eyes, the talons, the fabulous feathering. The form is absolutely striking. The pose is a most difficult one to get right; the artist has done a superb job. Artist's name incised at base; and written in ink on bottom. This piece came from the well-known Pierre LaPlante collection dispersal sale in the early 1990's, where it had been for many years - one of the finest gatherings of Quebec folk art ever assembled. Offered here because I no longer have sufficient room to display, following a move to smaller quarters. Shipping included.
US$900 (incl shipping)
