Luce Center Label

S. L. Jones created large figures and heads based on the people who lived and worked around him in Pine Hill, West Virginia. The portraits have very similar features, and in these pieces the bow and the pipe are the only way to tell that one is male and the other female. He used pieces of yellow poplar, maple, and black walnut to carve his sculptures and highlighted their features with paint and pencil.
