Detail


This ugly thing, in colors suitable for a bathroom wall, is interesting only because of the artist's complete failure to manage a feasible piper, even though he or she used the common device of hiding the hard part - the hands and chanter. Either this piper has an extra joint between his elbow and his wrist (perhaps made of his apparently missing neck bones) or his chanter has some serious twists and turns. The inclusion in this collection of items like this, in which the piping element is completely seperate from the actual stamps, is something I'm very ambivalent about. However, if they come my way, I'll post them.
