Recommended Posts

Hi All, been a while since I posted.

Covidhas kept us on farm, so I have been building a few animals in the past 16 months.

we have been in full lockdown or partial for a very long time now.

But, some good things have come out of it.

PS: I hope youare all well

Enjoy

Wow.  That's some impressive work. I find quite a few pics of metal sculptures on the internet but typically nothing that elaborate. Thank you for sharing.

Made my day, thanks

Nicely done!  The fluidity of the pieces give them a "real" look.  I'm going to forward this to my Daughter the Veterinarian! 

Work hard to getthst real look. Thanks

Thanks Frosty, they have very different characters. One in particular gives my husband the evil eye while he does his weights each day. Found him covered up yesterday lol! Hadto laugh when the hubby can feel them watching him. Nailed the real aspect I think

Awesome work Cathsonn. I agree they are very lifelike and well done! Thanks for sharing. 

I'm not certain what the Ouroboros style dragon is but I like its look a lot.  

Thanks my friend. The Armadillo lizard was a test to myself, by making something less complex. Easier said than done for me, but happy with the way he turned out. Appreciate comment

I would also have to say the third from bottom, picture of the pig face (?) is giving the evil eye.

That would be Correct. That is a Quokka’s face, and he seems to follow you around the room. I took a lot of time to get the face right! Think I added a bit to much of myself lol!!!

Got it in one, cigar for you!!! See the little comment about him on Irondragon reply. 
The crow is a solid bird, and the caw makes him more so. I wish I had made space for the sensor inside him, hard tohide. I have a short video somewhere, will post next time. Thanks

I had to look up Quokka and you have captured the essence of that happy little guy. Wish we had them over here in the states "Worlds happiest animal".:)

That they are Happy. From the side he is smiling. They were so friendly they were eaten by the indigenos lol!! Lucky tourism came along for these guys, they are protected now. Very personable. Thank Irondragon

Here in North America I have heard that several Indigenous Cultures had a rule that porcupines were off limits for "regular hunting"  as they were too easy for Humans to prey on.  They were reserved for "disaster rations"  as all you needed to kill them was a branch off a tree and so reserved for the  lost, boat wrecked,  sick, children, etc.

  And cunning as well.  

  I may just try a quokka sculpture someday.  I like happy animals.  Might even try a porcupine, pokey needles and all.  :)

Yes, Porkies are protected here but are designated as survival food. Sometimes they over populate and are thinned officially, they can be pretty destructive.

Frosty understand that totally.. We have the same issues here with a few macropods here..

Nodebt, yes why not try one out... I enjoyed the echidna's, spines and all...

ThomasPowers, yes porcupines have been used as a food source.. They are defenceless against us hungry humans...
