Description: I was really drawn to the power and folk art aspects of this sculpture. It is carved from one piece of wood since with its "hood" flared open. Its inset glass eyes are a focal point which animate the serpent. In good condition with a glued mend to the end of its tail. A very cool piece indeed.
