Puppet with newfound ceramic feet, & a wooden one from his past life.

Unrequited Love
Assemblage of found objects

A broken and battered mannequin, and a little puppet.
I'm not sure I've chosen the right title.
There's a sweet look of love and longing on the puppet.
The beautiful but battered woman is out of reach, but perhaps she still has a sweet memory of a childhood love.
I don't know.
But I find it strangely moving.
Things make themselves - but I did change his feet!
They were just little wooden slabs, but if you've got enough stuff then you'll always find the right stuff.
