 Mountain Goat/Wolf Confrontation By M. Barker


PhilShadfly Folk Art Gallery and Antiques is located in Port Dover, Ontario

This action scene between a mountain goat and a wolf was made by an M. Barker of Kingston, Ontario sometime in the mid 20th century.  It's the first time I have ever seen a "Holstein" goat, but then I don't get around much.  I bought a half dozen pieces made by Mr Barker from dealer Audrey Ruhland at the Odessa show, sometime in the early nineties. I like his approach and the little jewel eyes. Great crackly surface on the snow. I kept this one until now. I  have never found any documentation on him.  15" long, 8" deep, 8" tall.
