Great pair of tall high relief c1960's gravel art wall hangings in very good vintage condition. Pair features a male and female exotic tribal dancer on separate plaques. They are created with colored gravel and gold and silver metallic jewel highlights on each. Both dancers have high relief accents - feathers in their hair and bongo drums.
These plaques ae great representations of the decade - a time of awesome artistic expression. They have a great look and are ready to be displayed in any retro or mid century setting. I believe this is a Picturesque gravel art kit although it is not marked.
I can find similar wall hangings without the high relief accents online but I only find the male dancer of this pair with the feathers and drum relief accents. It's rare to find this set; especially in such great condition. Wall plaques are constructed on a "linen" texture vinyl background on a Masonite board with stained wood side accents. Missing gravel on the female dancers hand (left side in pics).
Please see pics for more design and condition details. 36 1/2" tall x 13" wide with hangers on the back. The item "Gravel Art Tribal Dancers Wood Wall Hangings Plaque MCM Vtg Pair Mosaic Tall 3D" is in sale since Monday, August 6, 2018.
