With a simple silhouette and rich surface texture, this early 20th century metal-cut weathervane is a charming example of American folk art. Adding a decorative touch to the topmost point of a building, weathervanes were an opportunity to tell a story and reassert a community's values. This rustic weathervane is in the form of a grazing donkey, and possibly once sat atop the barn of a prosperous farm.
