A perfect gift for the golfer in your life, this stunning piece of art is the perfect blend of Iconic Metal married to reclaimed pieces of barn wood, resulting in rustic yet elegant artwork. Each piece is an ornamentally carved piece of aluminum affixed to a repurposed piece of barn wood. This amazing piece celebrates the game of golf. While the modern game of golf originated in 15th-century Scotland, the game's ancient origins are unclear and much debated. Some historians trace the sport back to the Roman game of paganica, in which participants used a bent stick to hit a stuffed leather ball. One theory asserts that paganica spread throughout Europe as the Romans conquered most of the continent, during the first century BC, and eventually evolved into the modern game. Others cite chuiwan ("chui" means striking and "wan" means small ball) as the progenitor, a Chinese game played between the eighth and 14th centuries. A Ming Dynasty scroll dating back to 1368 entitled "The Autumn Banquet" shows a member of the Chinese Imperial court swinging what appears to be a golf club at a small ball with the aim of sinking it into a hole. The game is thought to have been introduced into Europe during the Middle Ages. Another early game that resembled modern golf was known as cambuca in England and chambot in France. The Persian game chaugán is another possible ancient origin. In addition, kolven (a game involving a ball and curved bats) was played annually in Loenen, Netherlands, beginning in 1297, to commemorate the capture of the assassin of Floris V, a year earlier.
Most pieces come in standard sizes of 16” x 9” or small sizes of 9” x 8”. The metal stands away from the wood approximately ½”. Each piece contains hanging hardware, an authenticity sticker, and is personally hand-signed by the artist.
The artist is a native of Greenwood, MS, a town on the east side of the Mississippi delta bordered by the Tallahatchie and Yazoo Rivers. His interest in repurposing came at a young age as he first learned woodworking and metal carving skills from his father who made folk harps.   He started crafting these magnificent creations in his retirement after attending Mississippi State and a corporate career with Fed Ex. He now resides in Hernando, MS.
