Female Figure #2
Signed and Dated
From a California Private Collection.
Size - approx 17" high, 6 x 4" at base
Condition - Very Good. Felted on bottom.
A poised female figure carved from a sweeping manzanita branch. Beautiful rich red color. Like most of Calvin's carvings, the figure's gesture follows the natural form of the wood. She looks out and slightly upward, as if contemplating the sky or a bird in the trees overhead. Her expression is whimsical and peaceful.
Like many of Calvin's carvings, the features and long flowing hair are inspired by his family, in this case possibly his wife Loretta, but more likely his daughter Jamie.
