Object Name Assemblage
Description Wooden figure with two natural arms and two natural legs, stripped of all bark. The right leg is much shorter than the left, and does not touch the ground. The figure is wearing an extremely rusted metal hat, has two triangular metal eyebrows attached with two nails each, two eyes made with metal and two thumbtacks, wooden ears attached with multiple nails, a wooden nose with a thumb tack in the end, two wooden lips attached with five nails, and a branch "handlebar" moustache. The face has traces of peach paint. The figure has five nail buttons. Hanging off the left arm is a glass bottle. The left leg also is two different colors, perhaps two seperate pieces of wood used to form one leg. Over all the figure is extremely worn and weathered.
