A great wood carving piece of folk art. The symbol and memorabilia of this piece is a wonderful addition to the collector. The phrase that the man has posted is a typical remark made by "us po' folk" the politicians are always making that statement. Is there irony. Colourful and full of meaning this is a great piece. Especially if you collect Braxton Ponder. He does not typically make such a bold statement. A rare piece.
