This is not a painting or a cutout of a little man. I did not placed it on top of a building. Yet, it appears to be standing there? This is a straight photo of one building in front of another building. The building in the foreground crops off 95% of a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant with a metal sign of Colonel Sanders which crowns it's top. The only part of the Kentucky Fried Chicken building that shows, is the very top of the Colonel Sander sign. The image is shot with a telephoto lens, it gives the illusion as if a very little man is actually standing on top of the foreground building. Shot in Miami Beach in 1973. I have attached 2 stock photos of the Kentucky Fried Chicken building and the Colonel Sanders metal sign to help explain the photo

Signature: Signed, numbered and dated on verso, 2/15 printed later, unframed
