Mid 1900s Folk Art Wood Carving of Geronimo (sold)
I was in New Jersey earlier this week and met a woman from Colorado who had a nice little collection of Western antiques. The Geronimo carving was the best thing she had, but I didn’t realize how good it was until I photographed it this morning. The face is beautifully stylized, and the expression is surprisingly complex. It’s stoic and sad, but I swear he’s half smiling at me right now.
