WWII POW Handcarved Folk Art with Birds
An extraordinary piece of history and work of art. Handcarved wooden frame which has a raised border, very fine detailed indention background, and raised design. The design is wonderful and symbolic: on each side of the raised center oval cutout there is a large bird each sitting on a tree branch with leaves and acorns ; (probably) the dates of captivity, 1941 to 1942, in the upper corners, respectively and toward the bottom, center, is CAPTIVITE.BERLIN, which is probably the location of captivity. The piece measures 6 1/2 x 11 1/8.
