Folk Art Collection donated to Austin Peay State University by Ned and Jacqueline Crouch

 

APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative ArtsClarksville, TN – The artist, a Civil War veteran and 19th century dentist, carved the peculiar little figurines out of wood. He placed the musicians with their instruments in the back row, and up front, connected to metal wires, stand the dancing couples. Other macabre figures, such as a thin man playing bones and a woman spanking a baby, populate the dioramic scene.

When a crank is turned, a series of pulleys cause the pieces to move and dance in an awkward, dreamlike manner.
