Erik Nitsche: Wooden Duck Decoy
Artist: Erik Nitsche
A century ago, great flocks of wild ducks blackened the sun above rivers and lakes all across America. Hunters lured them with colorful, life-like replicas known as decoys. Carefully carved and painted by hand by master woodcarvings around the turn of the century, these decoys were produced in an amazing variety. And among the most beautiful of all American decoys are the colorful Wood Duck decoys as depicted on this Cover. Today, these duck decoys -- now antiques cracked with age and scarred by buckshot -- have been greatly sought after by collectors, wildlife enthusiasts, and art lovers alike as truly unique expressions of an American Folk Art.
This artwork was originally published on the Fleetwood® First Day Combination Cover for the U.S. 22¢ Folk Art Duck Decoys stamps issued March 22, 1985.
