This erotic folk art sculpture is definitely one of a kind. Initially, it appears to be a man's head emerging from a box on which is written (I think) "The Thing". When lifted, the box shows same man in all his aroused glory. The piece measures 7 1/4" tall when closed. The face and body are all hand carved. Nails are used for the eyes.The body is made from a wood advertising box; circa 1920.
