Who Is it?

If you can tell me who this is, then I will be
happy. This shape "spoke" to me (originally
woodturned by my dear hubby), and I am
hoping that I got it right.
I am not ready to add the final touches
until I am satisfied!
So please let me know what you think.

Added - May 5 - Thanks to Kim!!
She saw it as Charlie Chaplin and she is
Now I will add the finishing touches..

It looks to me like Hercule Poirot.

Well, he does a little - but that is not who he is intended to be......another guess???

Kim said...

I think it is Charlie Chaplin. Another great spool.

crazyhaberdasher said...

Thanks Kim! That is correct!!!
Given the shape of the head I was a little unsure whether anyone would recognize my work.....I am happy now!!

macati said...

yup,a grey charlie chaplin was my first guess but the idea of poirot... it isn't that far!!!

I think if he had been able to have his hat on his head, there would be no doubt.

I haven't ever seen Chaplin in anything other than black but it is still very definitely The Little Tramp himself... well done.

It was not easy to find a good picture of Charlie Chaplin - due to the era of course the pictures were in black and white and hard to tell what colour the actual suit was....I did see some with a dark jacket and grey pants. For painting I thought it would be easier to use grey.

I immediately knew it was Charlie Chaplain.

You did well!
