Man becomes 'cowboy,' makes paper horse during Australian quarantine

David Marriott, an art director from Sydney, Australia, thought he might take up juggling and spend his quarantine listening to music. Instead, he ended up turning himself into a “paper cowboy” using brown paper bags to make a costume — and a paper horse named Russell.

Marriott had traveled to the U.K. after his father died unexpectedly in February from COVID-19, The Guardian reported.

After quarantining in the U.K. before the funeral, Marriott expected another “long two weeks” on his way back into Australia, so he bought himself a portable speaker and juggling balls, he told The Guardian. 

However, just three days into his quarantine in a hotel in Brisbane, Australia, he found inspiration from his lunch — at least, the brown paper bowl holding his lunch.
