Illinois Handcrafted Corn Husk Figure of Woman With Hat and Dress (Full View)

Handmade cornhusk figure of faceless woman. She is created entirely from corn husks that have been soaked in warm water and then tied with string and formed into the body, arms, and head. She 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.
