Wordless Wednesday: Who...?

IMG 8439

An object d'art that once belonged to my father's mother, this Caribbean lady stands four feet tall carries a basked of fruit on her head and a purse on her arm. She's old. Only dad knows the secret to her beautiful complexion. (Cuprinol? Varnish? Spray Shellac? We'll never know.)
