With Stylised Facial Features
Hand Carved Wood with Pin Holes and The Patina of Use
With much evidence of use and wear, this working Milliner's Head has great sculptural interest and a rich patina. Unusually with stylised facial details and even a trace of historic red paint to the lips, it has a powerful presence. There are multiple pin holes to the surface, where many various hats have been held down to e styled and tweaked, which lend extra character and interest to the piece. We have handled several similar pieces in various materials over the years, but this stylised head has a most particular individual feeling about it, a flavour of genuine folk art.
