PERSONAL SCAPEGOAT (POCKET SIZE, Ears Up) by artist Carisa Swenson
Magic sculpt, fabric, paper, metal, thread and acrylics, 2.5” tall
Via Carisa: Many cultures have rituals for purifying a person or even an entire village through the transference of impurities into an object or animal, which was then released or sacrificed.
These scapegoats come with a compartment which houses a scroll upon which you can write down what you wish to rid yourself of. They'll keep what you gave them, so you can make room for better things!
