Folk/Tibal Art Rooster from Central America

folk art rooster

Carved and painted chicken/rooster from Central America, Guatemala. We purchased this folkloric piece in the early 1980s from a gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio that specialized in tribal and folk art from Mexico and Central America. The style of carving is skilled, somewhat primitive. It is 9 1/2″ tall, unsigned, and has been painted in a traditional style, a very cheery object.
