(Petit Goave, Haiti, b. 1939)
Wood sculpture (18 1/2" l. x 4 1/2" w. 8 1/4" h.) c. 1980's

Nacius Joseph was born in the town of Petit Goave, Haiti, in 1939. He was the first Haitian sculptor in wood to be recognized internationally, and remains Haiti's foremost wood sculptor today. According to historian Ute Stebich: Nacius Joseph lived and worked in Port-au-Prince for a number of years, guided and advised by the sculptor Gilbert Duperrier. According to some observers, Joseph's art at first lacked originality and imagination. Only after his return to his native town was he able to define his own style. He emerged as a fine wood sculptor.
