The Ticket Taker, a member of the Humor Parlor and Space Zoo. The guardian at the Pearly Gates, this being has evolved over many years. The various parts haveĀ  been, found, collected andĀ  combined from many sources. A cast off rubber mask that has been painted and fluffed out with Bison hair at ears, eyebrows and nose holes; a rubber spider, Halloween monster gloves, cotton knit tubing. All is mounted on a large industrial strap hook found decades ago in the junk stores of Superior, Wisconsin.

You reach inside one hairy nostril to give over your ticket to ride the “Last” bus. Scary, hairy and end of the line sweet. 23” wide x 33” high. Boo!
