heavy metal

Fort Collins, Colorado

Colorado has a rich history of dinosaur finds, with bones and fossils dating back to the Jurassic period coming to light in recent years...not surprisingly dinosaurs were a dominant theme at Swetsville Zoo, where the owner has assembled a large collection of fantastic creatures made from old car parts and farm machinery...a sort of heavy metal folk art

These junkyard animates seem to be spreading across the globe, preparing to takeover after man's demise.

Made by someone with a sense of humor and artistic skill. Had to smile when I saw this.

Heavy Metal for sure. A fascinating sculpture. I especially like the cog eyes and spark plug earrings.

Quite imaginative, and beautifully enhanced by your play of light on it. Kinda looks like the big bad wolf singing into a mike. Karaoke?
