Happy/Evil Guy. Carved painted wooden figure, with nails used for eyes and cobblers nail to secure leather belt, traces of a perished mohawk (horse hair). I got this from a vendor who thought it to be of Native American (plains) origin-dolls like this were used by medicine men in rituals. It's so crazy and rudimentary in its pose/balance, with the perfect amount of detail to give it some life, it could be native, pacific, or even a folk art figure, either way its got teeth.

"Could you leave me some cash if you're coming back for it, just so I know- it's just that things happen...now that you've picked it up you've transferred your energy onto it, now other people are gonna be drawn to it, that's what always happens" :-0
