Diary and Pointer
wood, mixed media
15" x 18.5" x 14"

...Resting atop the freestanding tome, the "pointer" of the title is a stout, serpentinely crooked stick. Decorated with colorful stripes and incised with scratchy "X"s, it could resemble the witch doctor's staff that Screamin Jay Hawkins brandished when he shrieked, "I'll Put a Spell on You!"
