Artifact # 1


Artifact # 1: a "John Deere tractor lamp", which is used within the "home" to designate the social status of the male member of the household. Such decorative objects are commonly utilized in the deep Southern regions, but are, in fact, imported through various trade routes from foreign tribes. Anthropologists have found that such caste markers are frequently molded in "plastic", but such objects have also occasionally been discovered in metal or wood. Posted by Hello

Have you ever seen the book Motel of the Mysteries by David Macaulay? I have a feeling you would enjoy it.

Hey L - My dad has one of those (part of the farmer in him). He loves anything John Deere. He even has a huge tractor belt buckle.
