Adolph Hitler wood carving

Postby doug6zj9 » Thu Nov 07, 2019 7:28 pm

The story is that this was discovered behind a wall, in a tavern, in Austria somewhat recently. It is thought by the owner to be one of a kind. Is it "art", in the correct category? Have you seen it before or others? Do you believe it is period? Do you recognize the artist's signature? What do you think of the artistic merit?

Thanks, Doug

This is a beautiful piece, I have no doubts it is period Third Reich. I will investigate the signature for you. Thanks for posting.

Well... whatever this is and whoever it was created by... I have bought it and is safely in my possession. And I could not be happier. It is a very powerful and skillfully executed visual experience. And no, you can't have it. :wink:
