Exquisite detail and exceptional craftsmanship distinguish this rare Black Forest carved wood plaque. Emerging in Switzerland in the mid-1800s, Black Forest woodcarvings are amongst the most sought after decorative items in the world. The dynamic and detailed style of woodcarving is most typically seen in common household items such as benches and shelves, and decorative plaques such as this one are quite rare. Displaying all of the clever creativity and superior quality of Black Forest carvings, this plaque is an incredible find.

Depicting a charming pastoral scene, this remarkable carving boasts phenomenal workmanship and detail. A bare-chested sheepherder has thoughtlessly discarded his staff as he gazes upon three coy female nudes, his forgotten herd grazing in the distance. Clever and engaging, this entrancing and unique work is an absolute delight.
