Announcement   "Heads of wizards. witches, jesters, fairies, cavaliers, clowns, Shakespearean Characters and Dickensian gentlefolks painstakingly painted, wigged, hatted and garbed..." these highly collectible descendants of the medieval entity known as the jester stick are "Sir Cedric's Good Heads" created by Lynda M. Jasper-Vogel in her Marin County, California workshop from 1980 to1990. The jester stick, bauble, or fools head originated in the Middle Ages as a large phallus on a long stick with which fools and entertainers would hit each other during comedic sketches. When comedy became more sophisticated so did the jester stick. It evolved to the likeness of the jester and was used in the same way the a ventriloquist would use a dummy. Members of fashionable society would often have one made in their own likeness to be carried during important festivals. (see "profile" for more information)

The Green Eggel travelled from the US to Europe to find its new HOME. She arrived in perfect condition and the least I can tell about the artist, Lynda, who created her is that she has the secret to put the spirit in her creatures so actually they come alive in your hands. That's a mystery, but Linda knows the secret!

He is super cool! Was glad to add him to my collection of creepy clowns. He was packaged great so he arrived in a perfect condition. Thank you so much!
