Tswana, Botswana, Africa, early
This spoon is a wonderful example of abstract expressionism. It commands
a great presence. Both the figure as well as the section of the shaft
before the bowl of the spoon are stained, providing a strong color contrast
to the light colored, natural grain of the wood. The piece is carved from
a medium dense wood. Nice old patina.
The height is 16 inches on the custom stand.
