Object Name Assemblage
Description Figure made from tree branch stripped of bark. The branch forms the head, torso, and branches into two legs. Twol smaller branches are attached to form arms. The branch is broken at the top to form the hair of the figure, a carved wooden c-shaped ear is attached on the right side. Diamond shaped pieces of scrap metal with blue round centers are attached as eyes. Two rusted scaps of metal form eyebrows. A natural snout-like nose is formed where a branch has been sawed away. A wood knot is nailed under the nose to create a mouth. Three painted and rusted bottle caps are centered down the front of the torso. A metal belt with a cloverleaf shaped cookie cutter buckle is around the waist.
