    All metal casting---human figure included--- Hiawatha Harris is world renown for his expertise in cane syrup making (and a few other things that require cooking but can't be talked of out loud). He and June Bug, the mule, have been pressin' cane for nearly twenty years together. Hiawatha learned the syrup trade from his grandfather, Hephestus Cornwallis, who would mix freshly heated molasses with corn and oats to create a creep feed for his calves during the cold winter months. The thick aroma from the cooking molasses could be sniffed in the air for miles around the farm and, after over 65 years, the ground still smells of molasses syrup from spills when it is disturbed. The black as tar molasses was just as hard to get off clothes and skin but, boy did it smell so much better!

    Detail

    What a unique scene stealing detail for any Louisiana sugar cane layout. It will be a terrific addition to my HOn30 sugar cane scene. I couldn't believe that anyone would make the perfect piece. The details are terrific especially June Bug the mule. It was a little tricky in places to assemble the harness for the mule but certainly worth the little bit of effort. Thanks for making it!!!
