“PEOPLE FIGURES”

I received a package from the Museum returning one of the sculptures. This  “Pupazzo”  had a mouse on it’s head, which I had bought in an antique shop and put on the sculpture as a hat. It was a “real” mouse done by a taxidermist.  The letter from the Smithsonian explained to me that they had to take this particular piece out, because several visitors had screamed  while noticing it.
