Vintage Russian Folk Art Clay Figure—Man with Horse and Plow

This classic Russian piece is from the same collection as described above. The theme is a farmer plowing his field with a draft horse. His full fanned-out beard, fur hat and belted tunic really captures the spirit of the Russian peasant. The forward-pulling gesture of the horse and deliberate stance of the farmer artistically expresses the laborious effort of preparing the soil for Spring planting, and important theme in Russian folklore and peasant life. This figure was made in the Archkangelsk region of Northern Russia by the white Sea. Condition is very good with no chips or cracks in the paint or clay. Age: 1940-50's. Size: about 8" long
