Description

Three figures made of paper mache. One figure has a detachable umbrella and another figure has a detachable hat. All three figures are by Houston artist Patrick Davis. Originally from Guyana, South America, Davis assembles paper mache figures which he then clothes with paper from magazines, National Geographic being his favorite. His finishing touch is often tiny snakeskin scales, which he uses as fingernails and toenails.
