An African-American effigy made of cement with bead eyes and gold paint.  Circa 1920 (?) found in the Whitehaven neghborhood of Memphis, TN in the mid 1980s.  Purchased at an African-American family yard sale.  They likely "inherited" the piece, as they said it was "always sitting on the back steps."  Inscribed around base "JIM LADY"
