Relation to the Book
The soap figures pictured above do not play a life changing role in To Kill a Mocking Bird, but they do contribute to the plot of the novel. Together, the figurines represent the brother-sister tandem, Jem and Scout. The maker of these items has not been revealed, but we can infer through contextual clues that the person is Boo Radley. Boo Radley, is Scout and Jem's neighbor that they have been obsessing over for quite sometime. The two begin to find objects hidden in a tree that lies in Boo's front yard. When they find the soap figures, it leads us to believe that the person behind this (we are assuming it is Boo) has been watching the children for an extended period of time to be able to carve such intricate models of Scout and Jem.
