Well today I went with my mother-n-law to get some paintings from her sisters house. And what do I spy in the kitchen with a giant dead plant on its head. After some carefull begging , I convinced her that we should take it. She agreed saying I could have it. Adding that her sister probaly wont even notice its gone.






Anyone have info about this carving? Is it a Witco or not ? The last carving I got was, as Keigs told me .

Wow, what a strange find....but isn't that Tikinapping?

I will have to scour my catalogues though, I can't recall ever seeing that specific design. Maybe it was from that Woodcarver (what was his monniker again?) guy that copied Witco up North...

Thanks BigBro , I didn't know there was someone here copying Witco. Although I am not surprised.
I wouldn't call it Tikinapping as it was neglected and unappreciated. I would say more of a liberation from a house full of jackrussels and deadplants

That is a very early Witco. It's called "God Of Fertility" Great find!!!

Don't feel bad, rodeo - bigbro is just trying to distance himself from his bold absolution of my witconapping.
