"Peruvian Male in Traditional Headdress," Art Deco Sculpture

$3,400

About

Superbly carved and visually striking, this life-size depiction of a Peruvian man in a traditional knitted headdress is a superb example of stylized Art Deco sculpture, as well as the fascination that American artists had in native cultures and costumes around the world. Carved from a gorgeous block of mahogany, the sculptor captured the high cheekbones, full lips and deep planes of his subject's face, as well as the patterning of the headdress, almost proto-Art Deco in its geometry.
