Uncle Sam

PATRIOTIC CARVING
Uncle Sam wants you!

SHOP OWNER: Doug and Mary Ridley
LOCATION: Paducah, KY

    This is my third carved Uncle Sam caricature. The first was purchased by the Museum of Fine Art in Owensboro, KY and the second one by my youngest daughter, as it won a third place ribbon in the National Caricature Contest, in Branson, MO. This one will be a contribution to our local political party as a means of raising money. It's 20-inches tall, made from basswood and sugar pine, painted with oils and acrylics, and stands on a map of the United States. I patterned him after the famous "Uncle Sam" created by James Montgomery Flagg.
