Large Black Carved Plywood Wall Clock, Spanish Bull Fighter, Hand Made

I Like Mikes Mid Century Modern

This is a remarkable and magical piece of wall art, handmade circa 1960, by carving plywood to create a charming bull fighting scene, complete with spectators, silhouettes and architectural perspective. We have updated the movement in the clock (which, in the world of the picture, is on an old Spanish building) to allow for a battery, so you can hang this functional art anywhere. The vibrant colors on the gleaming black create a gorgeous contrast, and the judicious use of the absence of paint is remarkably nimble as well. So much is shown with so little! A truly impressive piece of...dare we say folk art?
