Wood Carvings by Gary Cooper of Wichita, Kansas

Hand carved wooden bluegill mounted and framed
This handcarved 11-inch wooden mounted bluebill is carved by folk art carver Gary Cooper. The carving and attention to detail is in the lodge art style with a rusted metal hanging chain. The 11" fish is also framed. The bluegill has metal fins like the ones of years ago did. Sometimes it got a little wild in those lodges and the carvers didn't want the fins to break in case there was a scuffle a little too close to his work of art.
