Illinois Faceless Lady Handmade from Light and Dark Corn Husks (Three Quarter View)

Illinois Faceless Lady Handmade from Light and Dark Corn Husks (Three Quarter View)

Cornhusk figure of lady made by a farmer's wife in Illinois. She is handcrafted from light and dark corn husks that have been soaked in warm water. They are then formed into the body, arms, and head. The faceless woman is wearing a cotton print skirt, with matching sleeves. A plastic water bottle is used to form her base to support her standing position. She has a cornhusk hat and collar, both secured with straight pins. This figure stands 11 inches (28 cm) tall.
