Much larger than the typical weaving pulley, this figurative carving was used as decorative sculpture, yet borrows many of its artistic motifs from traditional forms of the common tool. The fundamental form of the man atop the pulley adds a soulful dimension, and the form of the lower pulley is mirrored in the arches of his legs and arms. This stacking effect unifies the carvings into a single sculptural object.
