    At first glance, I thought that this was some type of doll, but now i am wodering. It is expertly carved and almost seems real, in some way. The hair, which appear to be human, has been tied into many small bundles and then all woven together to fit on the head. It appears to have been glued on, at some point and the dried whatever is still on the wig portion. Anybody out there have an idea as to what it is and how old it might be?
    Thanks in advance for any help........

      Somebody bought me that last beer, that I didn't need, and I think I may have been making out with her at the Soggy Dollar Bar earlier. Guess this is pre-blowup dolls ? Unusual. Damn !! Just realized she took my wallet !! LOL
