Artist Steen, Lee
Object Name Assemblage
Description Wooden bust, stripped of all bark. The bust is wearing a hat made of an upside down orange and brown coffee can that reads "WOODS COFFEE", and a metal brim. The bust has two wooden eyebrows, attached with one nail each. Eyes are created from natural notches in the wood. The nose is made from a small pointy branch poking out, which was cut short. The mouth appears to be open, and is formed from a frayed notch in the wood. There is residue from peach paint on the face, and on the attached "C" shaped wooden ears. The mouth is painted red, and is "wide open". On the back of the figure, the neck is split open, revealing inner layers of wood. Over all the figure is extremely weathered and worn.
