Property from the Collection of John and Virginia Duncan, Savannah, GA


Willis Hakim Jones, Jr (GA, b. 1953), Carved Cane, 2012, signed, dated '2012', and inscribed 'Sav. GA' near handle, the dark stained wood cane carved with various organic forms surmounted by ball-form handle.

Willis Hakim Jones, Jr., a native of Savannah, GA, was introduced to woodcarving at a young age, playing with carved wooden ships his father made while he was at sea. Jones worked for a peroid of time making furniture for a local decorative artist. His carvings draw inspiration from the Savannah tradition of walking sticks, but feature more abstract motifs and imbelishments such as diamonds, spirals, checkerboards, and chain links. Jone's walking sticks were featured in an exhibition at the Telfair Museum of Art from 1998-1999 titled 'Masters of the Walking Stick'.
