Peace Sculpture

Submitted by Nessa November 10th, 2009

This carved wooden “Peace Sign” makes a pretty good desk accessory or ring-holder. I doesn’t have any marks or anything, maybe somebody whittled it while sitting on their porch. It’s kind of beat up so I think maybe it’s been thrown around over the years.

Kind of hard to tell from the picture, but the two “V” fingers are really skinny in comparison to the rest of the hand.

    I have several of these carved peace hands from the late ’60s and early ’70s. They’re really fascinating to me because they were all hand carved and are all unique. Not only are the “V” fingers on this one skinny, they’re huge! I love how much larger the thumb nail is than the nails on the fingers. Whoever carved this had much pride in their own hands.
