Red and yellow cedar, acrylic paint. Bobble-head attached by metal spring.

I decided to make this Funko Pop style figure to represent someone coastal who is filled with knowledge. The traditional bentwood box has been turned into an old coastal style bucket by flanging it’s top, which is flipped over to create the head of a bobblehead figure.

The body of the figure is carved out of yellow cedar. 

The bucket is the idea of sharing water to help quench thirst, or of a knowledge keeper sharing knowledge to maintain teachings, which another avid mind might be searching for. 

Funko Pop have become a pop culture icon, a bobblehead type figure which is done to represent pop culture icons, from rock stars to characters from film and television, and any number of other fictional characters.

The title plays with the idea that I am creating a knock off Funko Pop, when there are so many knock offs in the northwestcoast art market, which I am part of.
