I've never seen such a thing, John. So incredibly like a stone statue, apart from the body.
John Prior: The little figurines of angels and yesteryear were very well modelled also, more like porcelain than paper mache. Thanks Ginnie.

looks more like a grass man
What an unusual find.
Curious art on the street. We should give it another go on our streets with anonymous art. A greeting.
Is this one work in progress?
