    Description

    1987 Larry Bird Signed Wood Sculpture & Hand Drawing from Armand LaMontagne Collection. Armand LaMontagne created masterpieces for future generations with his wood carving ability. Each work LaMontagne puts together is a piece of art in itself. In the mid 1980's LaMontagne carved a full-size Larry Bird sculpture which is still on display at the New England Sports Museum. This actual chunk of wood (10.5" diameter) was used from the Bird wood carving and has Larry Legend's hand traced. A photo of Bird signing the relic (left-handed signature no less) attends. Bird offers this salutation to LaMontagne: "To Armand Thanks So Much Best of Luck Always Larry Bird." LaMontagne lends his personal authentication by wood burning this message: "Basswood From Bird Sculpture Armand LaMontagne 1987." The final piece of the puzzle is an actual outline (22x15") LaMontagne did of Bird's hand. Notice Bird's index finger and the crooked shape of it. "Tracing of Larry Bird's hands from life. for life size Sculpture Armand LaMontagne 1987" is written by the artist in pencil. Letter of provenance from Armand LaMontagne. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
