Painted Totem by Fred Schumm

A hand-carved fir wood totemic sculpture and base by the late American Artist Fred Schumm.

His works were influenced by Native American and First Nation iconography, which is evident in this carved and painted sculpture. Tribal in feeling, it is also a nod to the modern works of Brancusi. Both the sculpture and the stand, which comprise one single, joined unit were hand carved by Fred Schumm and it is signed and dated Schumm 93.

Condition
Excellent. a natural separation in the wood which does not affect the beauty or integrity of the sculpture
