These are constructed from found objects including wood bowls for faces and draped fabric and jewelry. Collage and leather plus acrylic paint and Afro wigs that I cut up...They are close to 5 feet high ( 4 feet 8 inches depending on the hair) and about 20 inches at the widest points.

They hang on the wall, as low relief sculpture. Backs are not shown.
