Exceptional Miniature Hissing Goose by Frank J. Adamo, Pocasset, Massachusetts, circa 2000. Frank is one of the Finest Artist/Carvers on Cape Cod, who most unfortunately is no longer able to carve but is still an Exceptional Wildlife Artist. Raven’s Way is offering a final few of Frank’s Miniature Carvings and we hope you appreciate their quality. This Hissing Goose is a Classic Carving, emphasizing the Out Stretched Neck, the Clear Bead Eyes, the Open Mouth, and the Raised Wings of a Goose probably protecting a nest or driving off another male. Adding to this True-to-Life Form is a Meticulous Paint Pattern of Finely Blended Coloration, a Blending which gives reality to the quest for “birds in wood”. The Goose measures 8” in length, 2 ½” in width, and 3 ½” in height. On the Bottom of the Base, the species “Hissing Goose” is identified and the Artist’s Signature “FJAdamo” is written. Truly an Exception Miniature by Frank J. Adamo.

Rare Miniature Sand Hill Crane Carving by Frank J. Adamo, Pocasset, Massachusetts, circa 2000. Frank is one of the Finest Artist/Carvers on Cape Cod, who most unfortunately is no longer able to carve but is still an Exceptional Wildlife Artist. I am hoping to offer a final few of Frank’s Miniature Carvings and we hope you appreciate their quality. Frank’s work always seems to exceed my expectations when a piece arrives and this Miniature Sand Hill Crane is no exception. When I went on the Internet to view photographs of Sand Hill Cranes, I was fascinated to see how well Frank captured the beauty of the bird in wood and paint. The Form of this Miniature clearly captures the Essence of the Crane and the Paint is a true Reflection of a Living Bird. The Artist’s Eye captures the Full Beauty of this Ancient Species. My Photographs only hint at the quality of this miniature. It Stands on a Select Piece of Driftwood with a Separate Turned Base measuring 3 ½” in diameter. The Crane is 6 ¼” in height (the total with stand is approximately 7 ¾” in height); the Crane is 2” in width (the stand 6 ½” in width; the Crane measure 5” from the tip of the bill to the tip of the tail. The Bottom of the Base identifies the species “Sand Hill Crane” and is Signed “FJAdamo”. An Outstanding Carving for any Miniature Collection.
