Name: wooden doctor figure
Description: This is a photo of a common type wood carving from Germany of a doctor figure. The unsual thing about this one is the fact that he is holding a monaural stethoscope in his right hand. Almost all of these figures with stethoscopes show them with a binaural either in the pocket or around the neck..It is also interesting that the label on the base is Gynecologist. This may be supposed to represent a fetal stethoscope.
