Carved and Painted Sperm Whale by Clark Voorhees



Clark G. Voorhees (1911-1980). Old Lyme, Connecticut or Weston, Vermont. Probably 1950's. Carvings by Voorhees are so highly regarded that even though "vintage" they are often included in fine antiques collections. This carving shows sinuous tool marks following the contours of the whale's body. As with other authentic Voorhees carvings, the carved teeth are set within a carved and applied/pinned lower jaw with the inside of the mouth painted red. The body is painted black, with gray specks representing barnacles. Voorhees' mark and intaglio stamp on back. Excellent condition. About 17 1/2 inches long x 5 3/8 tall x 2 deep. Ask for high resolution photos for detail, including the tiny eye.
