Folk Art Calligraphic Dove Asks to Limit Wheat Consumption Collection Jim Linderman

I am not sure which land fight, crop failure, state line or health concern motivated a young woman named Angel to produce this piece of art, but it does add a bit of mystery to the drawing.  I do know whatever it was took place in the mid to late 19th century, and the wheat shaft being consumed by an insect might provide a clue to the solution.  Maybe it is that little bugger who should eat less.
