#32 ~ 17" High Signed Hand-Carved Peace Sign with exceptional details

As LARGE as it looks like on the computer screen - it is larger in life. From San Antonio Texas - this is a holy grail among the always popular vintage carved peace signs. I am sure you have seen the vintage 4"-6" teak mass produced peace signs in your travels - in fact at one time I had more than a half dozen of them... but then came this. A whopping 17" tall, all hand carved - even wearing a watch! Signed on the bottom - it was created by artist Errol Reina of San Antonio TX - as a Christmas present. Best example I have ever seen of a 1960s hippie folk art peace sign... and I doubt whomever received it that Christmas appreciated it half as much as I do. I thank you Mr. Reina for your fine carving skill and this extraordinary addition to my collection.

    He and I share a birthday - 12/15, but he was born in 1947. Errol Joe Reina.

    Contact him of Facebook, and ask him about it! I bet he'll freak out!

    He's not a hippie anymore. He's a Trumper. Sad!
