Newest Wood Head

I mentioned in an earlier post that I have a thing for carved wooden heads. Here's the newest addition to my collection. He stands approximately 6 3/4 inches high, is flat bottomed and unmarked. He is painted black. The weight makes me think he could be oak.

I was drawn to him as he looks Nordic (to me) and reminds me of my travels in Denmark. It was in Denmark at a flea market (kremmermarked) that I spotted (and unfortunately passed up) the first carved wooden heads. So began my obsession.

  1. Yes Nordic for sure! Before I read your post I thought "viking". He will be a nice contrast to your very smooth, spare, elegant other carved head.
