Alvin G. Martin was an Older Order Mennonite folk artist from Lancaster County Pennsylvania. He took up woodcarving and painting as a hobby after his retirement from farming in the mid- to late 20th century. I first encountered his woodcarvings among his friends and relatives in Waterloo County. Measures approximately 4" X 4" X 3/4".
