$12,500.00Price

A masterfully carved pine head of Lady Liberty in an upward gazing pose and wearing a headband with a large star, on a custom base. Painted in verdigris green, the carving was probably part of a larger carving, perhaps a ships figurehead or for a public space. Carvings of this scale were often associated with the work of shipcarvers who carved various elements for ships, such as, figureheads, trail boards, pilot house eagles, quarter and stern boards. c. 1870's
