Chinese Mudman Woodsman - Vintage
This traditional mudman figurine is a detailed depiction of a Chinese man resting on a pile of wood with an ax lying on the left. The figure is very detailed and the accentuated musculature gives the impression that the man like is taking a rest from chopping wood. He is clothed in blue and green, with his straw hat on his back. He seems to be gazing thoughtfully into air, likely thinking of what he will do when his work is done.
The figurine is approximately 4" tall and 3.75" wide, measuring the logs from one side to the other. There is no damage. "China" and the number 336 are incised on the base. The figure dates to the 3rd quarter of the 20th century.
