the perfect mantel for dog lovers

courtesy national gallery of art, accession no.1943.8.8241
Somewhere in the files of the National Gallery of Art this is filed away: a watercolor/ink/graphite rendering of the coolest mantel design you'll never have.  The artist is listed only as "Henry Murphy, active c. 1935," and this Mantel Carving (Dog's Head) is dated c. 1938.
