Here we have a tall antique wood sculpture of a hobo, fully equipped with a front and back pack, bowl and beat up fedora hat. He's a sight, let me tell you. The size alone hits you harder than the normal old wood sculpture. But let's get right to it...the funky beard/ fu manchu. That is one killer and unique facial hair design. Straight up punk rock, 40 years before punk rock was even a thing. He even has torn jeans or pants (see pics), and is trudging along in bare feet. This dude has seen it all, and will tell you all about it.
The rare transient sculpture comes out of an old St. Paul estate. It was covered in layers of dust when it finally saw the light of day. Based on the look and green cloth on the bottom, I'm assuming this piece as made in the 1930s. Just a guess though. I can't find a signature anywhere. We have a mystery artist on our hands.
The hobo sculpture towers at 19" tall, 5" deep, and 5" wide. There is a patina everywhere, including scuffs and general wear over time. It fits this gentleman to a T. The wood is of the lighter variety. Not sure about the species. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental US only (no PO boxes). Free shipping on the unusual sculpture.
Put this bad boy underneath a lone accent light, and you're seriously cooking with hot sauce. Killer, rare piece.
