1940s Folk Art Wood Carving of Evil Totem | Macabre Antique
Here we have a macabre folk art wood sculpture totem of the devil, a skull, and a snake. I mean if you're looking for evil, you have the main symbols all stacked and ready for you. Start the ominous music because this little beauty will raise the wickedness of any room. The carving on this little beauty is a sight to behold. The pictures don't do it justice. And don't get me started about the legends running through my head about the artist. I have no idea, and not sure if I want to know. So, so wicked.
The rare folk art sculpture comes out of serious folk art collector from Iowa. As stated above, I was told the underground Americana piece was created in the 1940s. No idea about the mad genius behind this belter, so we're dealing with a mystery artist.
The devil folk art stands 8 1/2" tall, and the base is 2" wide and 1 1/2" deep. There is perfect light patina from age throughout the piece. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental USA only (no PO Boxes). Free shipping on the macabre folk art.
I mean, look at the missing teeth of the skull. Nutso.
