Stone Sheep Sculpture by Tim Lewis, Sandstone Folk Carving

A great animal piece. The naive or "primitive" style of Lewis' work can be deceptive. His search for the form he envisions in every block he attacks is well considered. He allows both his imagination and his hands to guide his chisels through the carving process. The signification of a sheep is good; and the signification of a she-goat is the good of truth (AC 3995, 4006). By good simply so called is meant the good of the will; but by the good of truth is meant the good of the understanding. Carved in 2010 Dimensions 19" x 11" x 12" 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
