Wordless Wednesday: Say Cheese


A few words with this one - Hippocerous (1926-27) by Edgar Alexander McKillop has a phonograph built into his rear end. He is being shown in the Folk Musical Instrument gallery at the Abby Aldridge Rockefeller Folk Art Museum in Colonial Williamsburg (VA, U.S.).

One never knows what one will learn via a blog! So, when I say "road trip" to my hubs and he asks "why?"...and I merely say "musical reasons" and smile... Great WW!
