  • "Lynette H.: Thank you for your timely response. This sculpture likely done in Dr Mim's earlier days. The round stones composing the base are something i never saw him do....Wish it had some sort of authenticity certificate Sincerely, Austin Thomas"

  • "Austin T.: Wow, what an honor to have studied with him. I am fascinated by the deep th of his work and the evolution of his style, I am particularly fond of this period of his work, the angular, native profiles of his faces are stunning. The piece is unsigned, in my research of past auction sales is typical of his work. It was purchased from an Arkansas collectors estate, the collection was primary listed american southern folk artist. This piece came with a biography on the artist. Thank you."
