Hand-made artificial limb. The knee height leg is constructed of wood, rubber and metal. The limb is made of a single piece of wood carved into a cylinder wider at top and narrowing toward the ankle. The cylinder is sliced in half from top down to ankle, allowing it to be adjusted in size. The artificial limb is attached to the wearer’s leg by an encircling piece of wire that is twisted using a short wooden rod to tighten and close the slats. A small rubber plate is attached at bottom by nails for a foot. A fabric handle is attached to the leg at top and ankle.
