    Tramp Art was an art movement found throughout the world where small pieces of wood, primarily from discarded cigar boxes and shipping crates, were whittled into layers of geometric shapes having the outside edges of each layer notch carved, or in the technique of a Crown of Thorns. It was popular in the years between the 1870s to the 1940s. The artists used simple tools such as a pocketknife to carve the wood and assemble mostly utilitarian objects. The most common forms were boxes and the frames, however, there were no rules or patterns to lend commonality in the artists’ work.
