I know I sent you Texas Pete before, but my last pictures weren’t the best and I kind of wanted to give him another chance to shine. I bought this weird (and HEAVY) made-of-clay cowboy head at a yard sale a few years ago. He’s super weird, super-heavy, and just about the kitschiest thing I have ever seen.
Profile view… I think he might be made of terra cotta? Some sort of heavy clay.
He’s hollow inside, but still weighs a ton. I wish he was signed. True artistry shouldn’t be ignored. I wonder who made him, and why… and when…? So many unanswered questions!!!
I love this guy. I would treasure this too. He’s so lumpily made. And that drooly, dripping mustache of his makes me at least be grateful he’s not a mug.
Too bad there’s not a signature on the bottom. I’m hoping someone made it in some kind of adult crafts class.
