This handcart is akin to carts used in historical re-enactments that Mormon youths undertake in high school and junior high to commemorate the struggles of early Mormon pioneers.  Ellsworth has created an impractical version of a handcart with white leather upholstery, fur grips, and hand-drawn wood grain veneer.  It is an overly romanticized luxury object that may never travel.
