BACK-SCRATCH Retired 2002 A Cairn Studio, artwork collaboration of Tom Clark and Tim Wolfe Gnome collection. When you’ve got an itch you just can’t scratch it’s like having a monkey on your back, and that’s no monkey business. What you really need is a back-up –like a helpful pal who can get those hard-to-reach places. The monkey said, “If you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours,” so it will be the gnome’s turn next! That’s back-to-back friendship. The coin is from Samoa—you know that if you give a monkey a banana, he’ll always want Samoa. The monkey has his thinking cap on, but I’ll wager he’s thinking about that orange for a snack. But back to the statue – just before we finished, we threw a monkey wrench into it! This is edition #77, item #6351, dated 1998. The Gnome measures 4 1/2″ tall 6″ in the diameter at the base. It is in excellent condition and comes from a store that is no longer carrying a display of Gnomes. Also there is no Certificate of Authenticity for Cairn Studio Ltd.
