Carved Bust of a Man   Carved Bust of a Man   Carved Bust of a Man    

Carved bust of a man, with detailed hair and eyes. Very similar to carvings by Shield's Landon Jones, a self-taught "outsider" carver, whose work has brought over $20,000. The Antiques and Arts Weekly recently ran a story on a carving of a woman's head done by Jones which sold for $23,125. We cannot make that attribution absolutely for this piece, but the treatment of the hair, eyebrows and nose are very similar in the two carvings, right down to an unusual small ridge along the bridge of the noses. Unsigned. Circa early - mid 20th century. (CS-14)
