Apple Carving Folk Art Sculpture Head Figure S. Shapiro
Apple Carving Folk Art Sculpture Head Figure S. Shapiro
SOLD

This unusual original sculpture was carved from an apple. The figure's head, including an apple top with stem for a hat, is all apple, dried and glazed, preserving the nicely carved details. The glaze is quite dark, and matches nicely to the knotty looking piece of wood that serves as a stand. It stands 6 1/2" tall. It is in excellent condition, and is well preserved.
Artist Shep Shapiro of Highland Park Illinois created this fruitful masterwork a number of years ago. He could be considered a folk artist, working specifically in apples. The local paper did a feature on him in 1978.
This is a fascinating sculpture that is different from anything you are likely to find.
