ABOUT THE PIECE:
Dunces are obedience school dropouts, rule-breakers with attitude and individuality. CopyCat’s a cheat, Fib’s a liar, Ditch always misses class, Re-tardy is always late, and Goody2Shoes is a tattletale. The Dunces represent the annoying (or heroic) kids of our childhood.
The Circular base of the box is not completely round. See photos.
