Mississippi (Three Quarter View)

Handcrafted man from the mud that was collected from the banks of the Mississippi river. The clay is gray when it is collected. Then it is washed, sculpted, fired, and hand painted. The clay turns to a red color after it is fired. The man is wearing a checkered red shirt, blue denim pants, and a belt made of twine. He is standing on a wood base. Tag says: "Hand sculptured original made with Mississippi River Mud by Lorraine D Gendron, Hahnville, LA 70057." The figure is 9 inches (23 cm) tall.
