This little guy is sculpted out of used paper, for example junk mail, food packaging and cardboard boxes. It has 4 magnets on the hands to hold messages up in the air. The magnets were rescued from a discarded shower curtain. The stand is a combination of the stick from a broken window blind, a blue tube left over from new construction and a cool little copper stand I found at Goodwill Thrift store. It is currently at KALEID Gallery in San Jose, CA. If you are into a wide variety of art, you will love KALEID Gallery.
