    Hi

    Well, here we go again!... this is an amazing hand carved wooden sculpture that is painted to look like bronze.

    It is signed...but I cant work it out?...any ideas? When I first bought it I immediately thought "Russian"..but this is based on no knowledge or experience..just a gut feeling!

    After the signature it looks like "09" or "27" which could be the year 1909/1927. Then again it could be part of the signature.
    appreciate any thoughts...

    What is quite amazing is that it appears to be carved from one block of wood. I cant see the joins for the pieces on top of the base .

    Its one of those....love it or hate it ..guess you know where I stand!

    any info appreciated

    thanks

    Paul

      Might be Slava. But it is not in Cyrillic.

      Is it wood ???

      Hi Vet.... yes wood... not a "hard" wood though...easier to carve I guess

      Looks like the horse and the man are wearing suits of armour; or ripplimg muscles. Could signature be German. What's the horse pulling?

      Definitely not Russian, nor does it look Russian. The man's face looks like more of a primitive carving, very unusual.

      Hi all
      thanks for your comments.

      The horse is pulling a log/wood. Much like you would see with forest work etc.

      ..if only I could work out the signature..!
