    This is a beautifully Hand Carved Wood Head of Jesus, featuring a long face; open, lidded eyes; high cheeks bones; aquiline nose; open mouth with parted bottom lip; detailed moustache and full beard; long, flowing hair parted at the center; and extended neck.  The carving measures 6" high (with a 3.25" neck) by 3" wide by 3" deep.  It is believed that the head originally fit inside a wood base.  The type of wood is unknown, but it has a distinct grain (which runs vertically) and a reddish brown hue which has sealed with varnish.  Country of origin, maker and age are unknown.  This Hand Carved Wood Head of Jesus is in Very Good condition.  It does have some very small nicks, particularly on the forehead, nose and hair.  There is also some pink paint inside the lines of the hair at the back of head, which doesn't appear to be original to the piece and could be removed.
