Gnomes, Santas & Figures - Page 2
So the story goes that Jeffrey & his friend Steve travel the globe seeking the ultimate fishing adventures. Steve (bottom center photo left) decided to find a unique gift for his fishing buddy that reflected a unique, charismatic, highly expressive, and at times a bit over the top personality.
Steve also mentioned Jeffrey's tendency to find boundaries as more of a suggestion than a rule; illustrated in the bottom right photo! Jeffrey's fishing prowess is obvious from the exuberant display of just two of his catches shown below.
This unique folk art figure by Stanley D. Saperstein was commissioned by Steve as a gift for Jeffrey's birthday. Stan decided to twist the perspective slightly when he conjured up this caricature. Every now and again a sign may just have something to say, and sometimes the fish actually do bite!
Projects that make us laugh and offer a never ending source of humor to our clients are always great commissions. Check out website's Figure Carving section for some detailed images of this original carving, a full gallery of Stanley's folk art figure carvings.
