Vintage Folk Art Metal Yard Sculpture Black White Maraca Found Object Reclaimed
Vintage Folk Art Metal Yard Sculpture Black White Maraca Found Object Reclaimed. Large sculpture made of found objects. Artist was a retired local college professor, who made a lot of colorful (mostly) welded yard art. I was told the artist was actually a Statistics professor, who enjoyed yard art in his spare time. Wildly colored black and white striped. The face is metal… I believe a wheel or implement part of some kind. The springs above the face have been welded on to the face. The hand looks to be made of wood. You can kind of see a bit of cracking in it. It does not look like the face was welded to the body, as there is a little gap between the face and the body. The front has a sculpted Maraca. The back does not have a Maraca, but does have a face. This piece is very large and heavy. It weighs about 28 pounds. The artist kept this sculpture outside in his yard, so there are plenty of scuffs n scrapes if you look close enough. There is also some discolorations that MAY be able to be cleaned off… Just some surface grime from being outside most likely. Sculpture measures about 28″ x 24″ x 6. Do not handle the piece by the face… Carry from the bottom with care.
