Man Stick Toy
Wood, papier mache, gesso, and wire
Acc. No. 1971-842
A figure in a red jacket and blue breeches with a green hat is wired to a long stick at the wrists and to a shorter stick at the ankles. The head is made of papier mache and the rest of the body is wood. The head, arms and legs are separate pieces wired to the body. The shorter stick has a hollow open end that slides over the longer stick. When the shorter stick is pushed up and down the longer stick, the figure moves.
