From 2018 to 2020 the train station in Lamy was decorated in a retro-1930's style to resemble a travel agency and destination. The lobby and beer pub (former storage room) attracted crowds daily with live music, pretty good food and local volunteers whose hospitality was sincere and welcoming. It was my great privilege to decorate the building from the front door to the back. New owners have returned the lobby to a blank condition and the pub, now decorated with abstract art, is open only on weekends. I have decided to part with the former decorative wall items and this antique hand-carved sculpture. This German Black Forest novelty is etched: "Invented & Executed by Harich 1854." Harich Grabmale LLC, established 1812, manufactures religious statuary and gravestones in Nürnberg, Germany and still in operation. It is likely this comical display originally decorated a tavern or public lodge and it brought much appreciation in the beer pub. Measures 26" tall with a 15" square base. Several other art pieces will be appearing on craigslist as I gather my collection for sale. Tom Hyland
