Charlie poses next to a clay sculpture (in and out of costume), Lone Star Studios, 1917

  1. these two pictures have always puzzled me. who made this figure and what purpose was it supoosed to serve?!?!?

  2. They're very strange. I can't figure out what's going on with the sculpture either. Was the first pic taken later? The torso looks a little more defined in that one, but in the second pic he has a hat. Was it removed or was the second pic taken later? Very bizarre.
