A rare pair of late 16th century carved oak figural terms, German or Flemish, circa 1600.
One carved as a Wild Man, the other as a Wild Woman, both beneath an Ionic capital and carved holding a club and covered in fur, on a waisted scroll-edged cartouche carved with a mask. The ‘Wild Man & Wild Woman’ became a theme in sculpture and painting during the 16th century due to the discovery of new territories by European countries. Good condition.
Dimensions: 11cm wide x 7cm deep x 49cm high, (4in wide x 2 1/2in deep x 19in high).
