Artist Steen, Lee
Object Name Assemblage
Description Wooden figure stripped of all bark. The head, torso, and leg of the figure is made of the same branch. There is an attached wooden arm, as well as an attached "baseball cap". Also attached, with nails, is a cream colored scrap piece of metal. Perhaps the scrap piece of metal was supposed to serve as a collar or a bow tie. The figures face is painted peach. The eyes are made of natural notches in the wood, a wooden nose is attached and made from a cut down branch. The mouth is also a natural indented notch in the wood, and the ear a branch that has been cut off. Overall the figure is extremely worn and weathered.
