I picked up this sailor as I walked along the road yesterday...
That is, of course ha ha, I picked up this small picture - the inset - found inland on the wet footpath.
Don't know much about his origins.
Fugitive from some parlour game I imagine.
Didn't know what to with him.
But I have placed him within one of the Ontological Museum's Department of Objects - the most obvious really - an antique bit of paper with nautical information.
This was inspired by seeing all objects used in this wonderful collage: 60 ways to serve Ham. (via fishbucket)
On reflection I think he might have been better placed in this company.
