Les Welliver is a contemporary American Western sculptor from Montana. He is known for his wood carvings of Indians and his Western theme bronze sculptures.
This unusual bronze is a caricature of a Native American Indian standing with his spear. His proportions show that this is not a serious sculpture and is of more humorous nature. The bronze is signed, dated, and numbered 1 of 30. It is mounted on a 2 1/4" thick piece of desert wood.
A different Western sculpture by a talented sculptor, this fellow would be enjoyed by any collector with s sense of humor.
