Folks, here's another cocobolo wood carving. It is a well polished Frigate bird. These birds are also known as Man of War. I love to watch them in aerial combat as they try to steal each other's catch of the day.
These wood carvings are done by the artists of the Wounaan or Ebera tribes who live in the rainforests of Panama. This particularly carving has been in my inventory for 25 years. I recently opened a box of old carvings and decided to share them with the world. This carving is 4.5" tall and the base measures 2" x 2". So if old or vintage wood carvings of Frigate birds is your thing... here's a good bet.
