From an old cotton shirt, to the burlap on his face, to the twine that ties him together, the scarecrow is made of various collected textiles from a farmer’s life. The scarecrow watches as the seasons change, and how crops like beans, sunflowers, and pumpkins grow throughout their lifecycle. While he may seem ordinary at first, there are many important agricultural processes intertwined throughout this scarecrow’s experience on a farm.
