Measurements: 18 ¼” W x 2 ¾” D x 31 ¾” H

Description: Attached to a black-painted vertical, rectangular wood panel are seven wooden forms assembled to create the image of a man’s body. His head is made from a piece of wood that has a curved top, which probably came from the top of a wooden chair. The recessed area of the curved shape is painted black. Two wooden pegs emerge from his face to represent eyes. The man’s torso is made from a black-painted piece of wood that was probably originally the seat of a wooden chair. Two matching wooden shapes represent arms while two other matching wooden shapes represent legs. A piece of wood is placed between his legs and projects slightly from the panel towards the viewer, representing a phallus.
