SCRATCH 


Scratch is one third life-size and comes by his name a couple of ways. Having been commissioned for a golf pro shop it could be his handicap. It may also derive as a pleasurable response to the activity of his avian hitchhikers. He is a Plains Bison not a Wood Bison. We know that since his hump is further back. The antique hand planes inside him further decide that this guy is most at home in the plains.
