Great folky carved Penguin by Nova Scotia Artist Neil Levy of Blandford . An unusual subject for Levy, this large carving was purchased from the artist in 1997 by the collector whose collection also included the Arthur Eisener carvings presently on offer.
Neil Levy made carvings of birds; especially sea gulls and ocean fish. He carved in Black Spruce and pine and painted all his work. He signed his sculptures on the base in script and often put ‘Blandford’, the date and his telephone number. B. 1926 D. 2011 ( Courtesy Lyle Elder Folk Art )
