Small Mallard Ale Bowl with Dragon Style Carving
This small Mallard Ale Bowl was carved from clear pine, and it has distinctive dragon style carving on the wing and tail. It has a dark blue color for the background, orange with reddish tints on the wing, and green on the tail. It honors the Norwegian folk art tradition of including duck heads as part of the design of ale bowls.
It was painted with acrylics, signed with chip carving on the bottom, and sealed with multiple coats of protective sealer. The dimensions are 4 1/2" height, 3 3/8" width, and 8 1/2" length.
