Item Description: Translate description
This unusual original sculpture was carved from an apple. The figure's head, including an apple top with stem for a hat, is all apple, dried and glazed, preserving the nicely carved details. The glaze is quite dark, and matches nicely to the knotty looking piece of wood that serves as a stand. It stands 6 1/2" tall. It is in excellent condition, and is well preserved. Artist Shep Shapiro of Highland Park Illinois created this fruitful masterwork a number of years ago. He could be considered a folk artist, working specifically in apples. The local paper did a feature on him in 1978. This is a fascinating sculpture that is different from anything you are likely to find.
