I'm calling this small clay fellow Ossining Man because the previous owner said it had been sold, or maybe given away, by the Ossining Historical Society. Ossining is in Westchester County north of NYC. Was it an end-of-day creation or something made in another country? Whatever its origin, I like the face and the fact that it is quite old. I want to think that it was found in a cave, while knowing that it likely wasn't.
