19th Century Primitive Southern Folk Art Figure

Just got this figure today. Really, really nice form and great size at 2 ft. tall. Interestingly, it seems the form was made using planks of 2 x 6" Southern Pine which were affixed together and then carved. The back of the head is flat and unpainted and there are two holes in the back that look like they were used for mounting at one time, so the seller thought that maybe this had been part of a 19th century trade sign. I suppose it's possible.
