Description Wooden figure stripped of all bark. Main wooden limb composes the head, torso, and legs. Arms are attached with nails.There is a third attached piece of wood in the neck area.

There is also a very noticably natural wood notch protruding from the stomach area, creating a belly button that sticks out. The figure has a "top hat" made of a glass jar, and a tin rim. Wooden eyebrows are attached with two nails, as are wooden ears attached. The figure has rusted bottle caps for eyes attached with nails, and a mouth formed from the mottled end of the branch. In the mouth area is a piece of a coffee tin reading "offee".
