Steel African Wart Hog

Wart Hog

Private collection

24" long 2006

Other works using the
"bird's nest" weave technique:

A truly strange animal, the Wart Hog's massive head is almost as long as it's body. It has several large curved tusks protruding from the upper jaw, giving it a prehistoric countenance.

I used strips of randomly shaped steel to fill out the mass of this bizarre creature of the African bush.
