Frequently called a "Limberjack" as similar dancing figures would be placed against a flat surface and made to jump around, the articulated figure was also just a common showpiece for a folk art carver or whittler. This guy is too stiff to do much dancing, but he is a fantastic sculpture.

    Nice folk art piece!
    Give him some Glucosamine that will help with the stiff joints & get him dancing again... :-)
