Coal Miner, 4.9.12

Found object assemblage, 17.5 X 26″ $250

The head and helmet is one piece and immediately suggested a coal miner, so I’ve been sitting on this dude, waiting to get some time to finish him. His arm is a 1957 Idaho license plate, and his fingers are these amazing dug relic pocket knives that were donated by Roy Bahls, my good friend and avid relic hunter. All the other stuff was just handy when I was assembling this. It’s wired and ready to hang.
