Here’s a video of Dan Willinger showing the Epitome of a Folk Art Ventriloquist Figure.

At first appearance he appears like a normal vent figure but when you look close you see that not only is his head carved from 3 planks of wood but the entire body , which appears to be seated on a tree stump, is in fact a tree stump.

I decided to call him my totem pole ventriloquist figure. He is a one piece body and seat with his back hollowed out to accommodate the head stick.
