This doll was a special request and he's not happy because he is a convict in 1820 in Sydney. He's wearing the black and yellow standard issue clothing and grey cap and they are all marked with the broad arrow symbol that designated the items as the property of the Crown. He's sitting on Sydney sandstone that would have been a familiar material to him as a government servant when working on local buildings. (Scraggs just grew from an idea and this is where my knitting meets my family history research...)
