Description Small wooden bust, stripped of all bark. The bust is wearing a metal hat, made of a tin can and brim. The facial features are half carved in, drawn on, and then painted. However the paint has mostly peeled away only leaving hints of peach. The hairline is carved in all the way from the front to the back, as well as the chin line. Eyes, a mouth, and circles for cheeks were also carved in as well as large "C"s for ears. The nose was made from a cut off branch. There also is black or brown paint residue on the back portion of hair. Overall the figure is extremely worn and weathered.
