Carved Watermelon

Painted Yellow Pine
19th Century


This watermelon is a very unusual piece of folk art. Watermelons are a common theme in southern culture and decorative arts but it is rare to find an example that is carved out of solid yellow pine. Originally, cloth was tacked on the interior to help resemble the interior of a watermelon.
