Description

Double-Faced Man Whirlygig – one-of-a-kind folk art wood carving!

This is a one of the larger paddle-armed whirlygigs my father created. It’s inspired by a weathervane from Pennsylvania made in the late 1800s.

He has a very friendly face – duplicated on front and back. The painting was done with with acrylic washes in a matte finish to give it an aged look.

His body was carved from one piece of wood, but the top hat was created separately. It’s mounted on a black wooden base with a metal rod so it spins very easily. The paddle arms are attached through the body with a wooden dowel and they swing freely. It is a perfectly balanced whirlygig.

The Double-Faced Man measures 16-1/2” tall from base to top of paddle arm when it’s straight upright. He’s 4-1/2” wide x 4-1/2” deep. It's signed "R. Weil" on the bottom of the base and dated 1982.

I love this carved lady, she is wonderful. I like the added information about the sculpture that was mailed with her. I would purchase another sculpture if I could afford it. Thanks

Most amazing carved whirligig. All of this artist piece have been awesome. The ETSY seller is super nice and shares her dad's pieces with us all. I love all of the pieces I have purchased, such a talented artist. Thank you for sharing.

This is a wonderful painting I am waiting for. I have a small size, but had to have this size in all its glory. The painting has been delayed due to weather that has struck the East coast. Be happy when it gets here. Wonderful, caring dealer. Thanks. Jan
