Object Name Assemblage
Description Figure made from a thick tree branch that has had the bark removed. The head and torso of the figure is a singular section of wood that naturally forks to form the two legs. Two smaller branches are nailed to either side of the torso to create arms. The figure has a wide-brimmed stainless steel hat, blue painted washer eyes, eyebrows made of natural wood pieces, carved C-shaped painted ears, a natural knot in the wood acts as a nose, and a mouth made from natural wood pieces. Five red painted bottle caps are attached down the torso. A metal band is nailed around the wood as a belt.
