Kneeling Gentleman Skeleton Man: I have nicknamed him Doug, (a.k.a. Douglas Diggs.) – A humble and honorable skeleton. A past life of integrity. Maybe he is some "body" you know, or knew.Kneeling Man is well-dressed in prairie coat, vest, suede pants, cowboy hat, and boots. Hand on his heart; he kneels upon a stone-look base that was lightly washed with velvet underglazes. Boots have the suggestion of carved leather. (The rumor is that Douglas is infatuated with Dee Dee :-)Height is 8". Base is 4.5 x 4Glazed in lead-free glazes. Doug’s boots are glazed with Velvet underglazes to give them a matte suede-look.The base is heavy (thick) to compensate for the backward lean of the pose. Due to the thickness, the interior has minimal cracking inside the hollow of the base; this occurred during the drying process. No effect on the stability of the piece.Clay is white B-mix. High fired.
