This is a bird man made of gauges and found railroad metal.
The border is made of antique buttons from the Eugenia Baird Collection. The “canvas” is the top from a salvaged wooden electrical spool with a blue wash.
Wings are salvaged wood with some cool alligatored paint.
The sun is made from a tomato can lid, repurposed sandpaper, and a peach nehi cap.
Thanks to Greensboro NC metal artist John Martin for the gauges.
