Object Name Assemblage
Description Wooden figure stripped of all bark. The head, torso and legs are made up of the same piece of wood. There are no arms attached. The figure has a very small twist top soda cap hat, which is blue and orange nailed in. "C" shaped ears are attached and painted peach. The figure has walnut eyes, with a piece of blue painted metal nailed into each for the iris and pupil. A wooden nose, which was a branch cut short, is attached to the face with two nails. The mouth is formed by a natural notch with a hole in it, and is set off towards the right side of the face. The entire face was painted peach, but is now wearing away. Four blue tin pieces are nailed on with three to four nails each. Each tin piece has three gold spheres with strings attached, and appear to be balloons. Over all the figure is extremely worn and weathered.
