20"L x 38"H x 13"W I made this out of a fiberglass head I found in Santa Barbara, an old prop from a movie. The body is a child dress form. I've put a vintage bingo cage, with bingo balls, in the form for it's belly (there is also a bird on a spit in the cage). Adding the right base and wheels, the redesigned fez hat and arms/hands made from vintage egg beaters finished the assemblage off perfectly!!!
