Will Rogers Portrait

Dated 1939 portrait of Will Rogers by the artist August Mack. Mack was an eccentric artist who not only created sculptures for Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana, but also carved a 21 ft. wooden rattlesnake he named "The Brazen Serpent". It had 362 ribs and over 4000 scales on its body and worked by the power of a small motor.
