Post challenge:
Thank you for your votes and comments. This is the first time I've placed in the top 10 - feels great.

Regarding who/what is driving the tractor - Lena is driving the tractor; Ole was sick and off work the day the picture was taken.

Lena is a 3/16 inch section of a farmers' (wooden) match. For arms and hands, a hole was drilled in the wooden portion just under the match's head to allow insertion of a very fine, covered copper wire. Hips are 'blu-tack' (actually corn kernal color).

The same material is peeking out from behind one tractor wheel; it was used to hold the tractor in place and maintain tension on the tow chains.

I'm giving you a 7 because I'm a big fan of Esperanto.
