Artist unknown. It appears that the artist was probably a talented middle school student who did not love the results of their labor in this case. This particular work of art was discarded at a middle school. After seeing it discarded for some time, it was rescued. Not sure what the clay figure was originally intended to hold though I like to imagine it was an instrument and that being a musician is just one of his many talents. I also imagine that his name is Cesar and that he likes to garden, as well. That is why I gifted him a spade and invited him to live amongst flowers and to take up the position of local night gardener. Today, Cesar lives in a garden and contemplates music, art, and existence by day. By night, he gardens and cares for the plants.
