This piece was carved out of a solid piece of stone and real leather was added to the stone piece. This representational sculpture is part of my "Realism in Stone" collection. Looking at this contemporary sculpture one can not help but think about the wild west. The creases in the hat make it look like you can go and put it on. but you must remember that it is carved stone sculpture and not a good choice of head gear. Nonetheless, it is fun sculpture to look at. sorry not the real deal.
