vitali_wood_figs_ebay.jpg

The extraordinarily subtle biomorphic, sculptural abstractions of Antonio Vitali's Creative Playthings-era carved wooden toys are icons that can bring thousands of dollars at auction.

The woodblocks-with-eyes-drilled-out dolls from his Phoning It In Era? Maybe not so much.

Vintage Wooden Figures by Antonio Vitali, current bid: $49.99, auction ends Apr. 28 [ebay]
