Southern Folk Art Limestone Carving of a Kissing Couple



A dynamic carving of a nude male and female embraced in a kiss with the man’s hand on her upper thigh. She is not resisting, but her slight push may be a signal to slow it down a bit.

Carvings as such in limestone are quite rare in that this small sculpture packs a lot of life into the stone. The work is carved in-the-round, and the figures have remarkable tension between them.


Though the work has elements not found on the carvings of William Edmondson, it certainly has some stylistic similarities.


Condition: Excellent with wear commensurate with age.
