This sculpture depicts a Monarch as a reminder of the importance of all pollinators for a flourishing habitat.This Sculpture is predominantly made of recycled materials. The butterfly's body is made of soldered copper piping joints, with sheet metal for wings. The Monarch sits within a number of dandelions. The base of these plants is created from a car disc brake, and the stems are made of stainless steel flexible hoses that used to carry oil.A number of metalworking techniques had been used on this piece. They include; forging, TIG welding, soldering, silver brazing and plasma cutting. The sculpture was zinc sprayed before it received paint and patina. Finally, a clear coat was applied, to give protection from the elements.Suitable for outdoor use.Dimensions: 6'h x 3'w x 2.5'dWeight: 68lbs
