Description Wooden figure stripped of all bark. The head, right arm, and both legs are continuous natural parts of the branch used. The left arm is attached with nails. The top of the head is stained black from worn off paint. Black metal eyebrows are attached with two nails each. Rusted metal eyes with black centers are attached with two nails each. Wooden ears are attached with two nails each. A cylandrical wooden nose is attached with a nail. A fiberous moustache is attached with two nails right above the redish burnt siena metal lips. The figure has five buttons made from bottle caps, the first one is cream colored and all are extremely rusted. The next four bottle caps read "LUCKY TWIST TOP DRAFT" on three lines. Right below the last button is a notch in the wood, which mimicks all of the other buttons above it. The torso and legs are stained a dark blue from paint residue. The figure is over all extremely weathered and worn.
