Physical description

Painted wooden carving of a hunter dressed in camouflage hunting clothes and cradling a rifle in outstretched arms. Painted onto the large pink face beneath the spotted green hat are blue and white eyes with black rims and brows, black hair and sideburns, a black mustache and smiling red lips. From the thick belt at his waist hangs a gray white-tailed rabbit and in front of him stands a black-spotted brown dog.
