I see the face of an American Indian rather than a wasp..................no clue what it relates to though.

Agreed, two pig tails and a feather.

Might have a cigar and it looks like CHIEF under the image.

 Interesting vehicle, most likely a field modification,looks like the turret from a bomber on a M-2! Some of the anti aircraft half-tracks were called wasp, probably because of their sting! I had a good friend that was going to paint a picture of "Lace" on my half-track, but he retired and moved to Florida! I've been trying to find one of those dry transfers of her but haven't been able too, there is a guy on ebay that does a lot of different pin ups,I bought one i was going to put on my G-506 open cab project.
