Re: [African_Arts] Wood Carvings.. African??
- Tonya, you would be amazed at the skill and "speed" carvings like these can be made. By the way, if oak wood is actually used, this would probably be a good indication that they may not have actually been carved in Africa.Ed

Subject: Re: [African_Arts] Wood Carvings.. African??Hello Tonya.I think these are market carvings without any specific attributions. Additionally, they may have been carved in Africa or perhaps, Indonesia. It is difficult to determine.All the best.Ed

I am trying to find information on what "type" of carving they are, or where they came from. :) I was thinking possibly African, possibly Haitian.
