Caricature: enormous artist's head with house-cap covering his flyaway white hair; his eyes are small, his nose bulbous, his moustache wispy against his puffy cheeks and chin. He wears a protective apron and seems to be picking a hat from an assortment of costume accessories: plumed hat, necklaces and what appears to be a baseball cap. (Virginia K. Anderson 03/27/95)
