Description: 

This sculpture is one of a few in the library's collection by an unknown artist with the initials "CCC". Carved from a single piece of wood, this particular sculpture exhibits an impressive command of the wood carving practice. It calls on the cubist style's tendency of depicting fire in rough, prismatic forms that extend upward with an erratic intensity that appears captured and solidified. Each of the faces of these forms bears various carving techniques, altering the depth, width, and frequency of each mark made to comprise a single dynamic piece.
