Sculpture description:
An Amusing Fun Seated Flat Watcher Weather Proof Aluminium sculptures in a Top Hat is another in the series some with different Hat stylesfor Outdoors in the Garden. This one has the addition of reflective traffic tape adding a design element. There are three hat styles with this group.

In fact I have only ventured from the Ball Hat on a few occasions with other hat designs. While browsing in a local bookstore in 1987 I discovered the book: Movies of the 1930?s filled with photographs of movie stills. This started me to thinking about different hats for the Watcher. It occurred to me that by simply changing the chapeau a new identity could be given to the seated man.
