Description Thomas V. Brooks (1828-1895) was a leading American wood carver; he was well known for carving ships and shop figures, particularly his Indian statutes featuring V-shaped headdresses.
Brooks was born in New York City, and apprenticed to John L. Crowell. In 1848, Brooks opened his own shop on South Street, in partnership with fellow carver Thomas Millard. It is believed that major elements of the New York City show-figure style were developed by Brooks during the 1850s and 1860s.
