20thc Prison Labor Camp Hand Carved Folk Art Wood Figure

$500.00

Remarkable presence.   Marked with the prisoners number (likely POW) on scraps of coarse cotton and corduroy clothing fitted with wound bits of metal wire.  To my eye, he appears Eastern European and made of a very light (something akin to balsa) wood. No provenance.      Stands flat at 5 1/2" tall.
