Strange people

1997

Carved and painted pine with MDF.

About 1000mm across.

The inspiration was from a 1950’s children’s game, “Strange People” which I collected. In the game the heads of the people are balanced on stands and the object is to knock them off by throwing a ball at them, more or less like a coconut shy. In my version the people are on a roller coaster and the heads are hinged so that as they are knocked over they can be reset.
