This remarkable hand carved figure of laminated poplar (with shellacked surface) most likely dates from the 1950s-early 1960s as the figure appears to be based on the Tom Corbett-era astronaut. Measuring 12 ½ tall x 4 ½ x 1 ¾ deep overall, the figure is nicely rendered with sleek lines accented by brutalist-inspired carved marks. The face is well defined and handsome and there are original pencil lines visible under the clear-coat. I see no damage repairs or losses; he is rather dusty from years of display. It appears he is unsigned.The item "Vintage Mid-Century Modern Sculpture Wood Carving Rocket Man Astronaut 1950s OLD" is in sale since Sunday, March 3, 2019.
