A folk-art carver of bas reliefs, Elijah Pierce created works that "are considered to be among the most important American folk carvings" of the 20th Century. (Rosenak 215). Described as a sculptural storyteller, he did carvings of African-American sports heroes, biblical subjects and political and social issues. He is best known for his religious carvings including the "Book of Wood", a series of thirty-three large reliefs with each representing one of the thirty-three years of the life on eart (showing 500 of 1116 characters).
