Description
 
A creative piece of work by master artist Marian Ulc. Size approx 18" x 11" x 3.5". Bird is pegged and detaches.

Marian Ulc was born in 1947 in a small village, called Szałas (a hut), in Poland. The peasant family, in which he grew up, earned their living as coopers. This is were his fondness in working with wood originated.. This, combined with a talent and a need for expression, resulted in his career as an artist.

He began carving as a young man. Not having any formal artistic education at all, he may be described as self taught. For over 40 years of work he developed a specific style, of which the most characteristic features are precision and care for detail, visibly distinctive in all of his carvings.

For work he uses an old workbench, which his father used for the production of wooden shingles, a set of knives and chisels and a range of other tools, drills, axes, etc. From lime and poplar wood sculptures are created. Later they obtain a colorful polychrome. At the end they are covered with bees wax, constituting a waterproof layer.

Inspirations come from everyday life - Weddings and musicians, from nature - birds, trees with animals. Yet religious and biblical motifs are often themes of his carvings - angels, nativity scenes.

Today Marian Ulc is regarded as a prominent representative of the art movement, described as folk art or naive art. His works are received with great interest, especially in Germany. He has exhibited in Berlin, Cologne, Nuremberg and Bremerhaven. Apart from that his works have also been on display in Finland, Sweden, Switzerland and the USA.
