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.
