It is unfortunate that I have found no information or photos of the Nicaraguan Pavilion in any of the the Guide Books from the Fair. But thanks to Mr. Jeff Guinn we now have a small glimpse of the craftmanship that was displayed.
Photographs of the woodcarving are courtesy of Mr. Jeff Guinn, Ohio (December 2007).
"I purchased the woodcarving at a "flea market" on (what was then) the far east side of Columbus, Ohio in 1977 or 1978. I went to the flea market mainly looking for dishes (e.g. Fiestaware), art deco items, and records. I found little of interest that morning, however I did find the woodcarving.
Nicaraguan Wood Carving
It was in the possession of a man who was then in his mid-'60s. He said that he was from Lancaster, Ohio, and was the only thing like it that he had. I loved it at first sight because of its detail and the intense look in the eyes of the figure riding the wagon. The humans and the front bull have great character. It is really an outstanding piece.
