An exquisite and rare early inside stander, this camel has remarkably rendered facial features and glass eyes, and appears to retain its original harness. It was possibly carved for a children's carousel.
Allan Stone, who passed away in 2006, had an unfailing eye that encompassed not only the giants of contemporary twentieth-century art, but tribal and folk art, design, urban architectural artifacts and almost anything else which aroused his visual senses.
