$5500. USD. This carved maple masterpiece by Joe McBrine Jr. will be on view in our Gallery in 2019. It is unbelievably REAL, carving of the highest caliber. The antlers on a hollow deer skull look as if just found on a walk through the fall woods. Every leaf, mushroom, and acorn is hand carved wood.
Notes about the artist:
Wood Carver Extraordinaire!
The extraordinary detail in Joe's work has earned him blue ribbons in both Maine and Canadian competitions. His ability to render details comes from first hand knowledge of Maine wildlife, much of it gained in his career as a Maine warden. His fine craftsmanship skills are a natural gift which he has honed over a lifetime of experience. Joe's lovely and exquisitely carved and painted wood feather necklaces (scroll down to see them) attract our customers to buy as gifts for others and keepsakes for themselves.
In addition to his polished sculptures of whales in 3-dimension, Joe creates wall mounts (shown below) which have the character of folk art and are joyfull to behold. Average length is 26".
Each piece is signed and numbered by the artist on the back where a hanging device is secured.
The Atlantic Salmon shown above is one of Joe's sought-after commissions. He crafts other fish species too as well as other wild life as time permits. Contact us if you wish to
discuss a project with Joe.
Joe's BROOK TROUT still life scupture was sold through our Gallery a few years ago...it is magnificent and located out of state in the keep of an expert fly fisherman who builds prize winning bamboo rods.
