Find The Missing Man Diorama in a Bottle,
2008, Spring Fine & Decorative Arts, Mar 15th
classic type of American folk art sculpture. This early 20th-century piece is constructed by hand in a contemporary glass bottle with wood stopper. The painted wooden sculpture constructed on the interior is a saloon scene with six figures, but only five of them are immediately evident to the viewer. The trick is to find the missing man as inscribed title suggests. Label inside reads DAN EPPLER, SR.; 15" high, 5.75" diameter.
