Measuring approximately 35 inches long with a cane diameter of 3/4ths of an inch, this hand-carved and hand-painted walking stick features a uniquely created head of a black man as the cane knob.

The walking stick is constructed of a single piece of wood. The staff is painted with black stripes, and at the very top, the stripes switch to polka dots to simulate the man's shirt. A handle has also been carved out which apparently represents the man's arm, painted with the same polka dots.

The head carving features distinctive full lips and a strong, protruding chin. A mustache and goatee are painted in black under the nose and bottom lip. The hair is also simply painted in black with a crude nose drawn in. The eyes are also hand-done and feature pupils and numerous full eyelashes. The left eye is slightly faded while the right eye is quite distinct.

The carver/artisan is unknown as is the walking stick's origin. A unique Folk Art Black Americana piece!
