This is folk art. I can’t tell you anything about the anonymous artist except that she/he loved carving and was patriotic enough to have this eagle inside his/her head and hands. Made by an anonymous, likely self-trained artist who carved and chiseled the art from a single piece of wood. Naïve and unpainted. Probably 20th century and probably American. I loved it and had to have it. I hope you love it too. This is folk art. This majestic, naïve eagle stands 11 1/2" tall x 15 1/2" at the widest point.
