whee ! (work in progress) 2009

Folk sculpture assembled from scavenged objects. The little pebble with the face on it and the driftwood body were found on the beach in October. I knew immediately that they belonged together as a flying man, but it took several weeks to visualize the hoop, and my initial feeling was of a flaming hoop. I'm still working on how to represent the flames in the context of rustic folk art. I would like to replace the shop rag cape with an old piece of American flag or similarly interesting old fabric, and I am searching for the perfect little hat for the top of his head!
