Parade Field Mice & Watermelon Float
Appalachian folk artist
Simple Primitives done in the tradition of old
little field mice are so excited to be in the 4th of July parade.
They have worked for months getting their float ready. The
three little field mice are made in the olde style. Their
eyes and ears have been stitched on. They sit on top of a
watermelon. The watermelon has black beads sewn on for
seeds. Vintage thread spools have been sewn on the bottom
for its wheels.
Dried moss surrounds
each little mouse as it is perched on top of the watermelon.
One little mouse is carrying a raggedy olde banner that has been
stitched onto heavy rusty wire. The little banner reads
United We Stand.
