Snake Carving, Stone, Tim Lewis Sculpture

A master of technique, he is an artist whose creative impulse and imagination give "the stone expression and warmth and life from within himself" Lewis and his carvings demonstrate the link between his art and his life and reveal some of the folk art's major themes- individuality, community, symbolism and utility. The best part of owning a Tim Lewis piece is you can put it anywhere, outside to add to your landscaping, by your step to greet your visitors or inside to entertain conversation over how you came to obtain such a finely carved sandstone piece. The snake is a great piece and suits a collector of animals and nature. The charisma it possess is inviting and the diamond shape a top it's head is a great feature. Carved in 2010 Tim Lewis (B. 1952-) Isonville, KY Tim Lewis has shown in Customs House Museum & Cultural Center 2008 Columbus Museum of Art 2009, Mennello Museum of American Art 2009, Kentucky Folk Art Center 2009, Referenced in:- Time made real - The carvings of Tim Lewis - Catalog, Customs House Museum & Cultural House 2008, Outsider Art of the South , Kathy Moses Schiffer Publishing 1999, Abbeville Press 1996, Contemporary American Folk Art - A Collectors Guide , Chuck and Jan Rosenak, 20th Century American Folk, Self Taught, and Outsider Art, Betty- Carol Sellen, Neal-Schuman Publishing 1993
