American Folk Art Chicken Sculpture - Americana

This extraordinary Folk Art Sculpture was cut out of steel and used as a target, it is pierced with half inch holes from a large caliber weapon. The bullet impacts created the most extraordinary craters and distortions in the steel plate; the energy causing the steel to move almost like a liquid, each impact adding to the accidental landscape, frozen in time.

CONDITION is as shown, the surface is original and gorgeous, with old paint and rust. The base is pieced from quarter inch steel plate, the chicken which is welded to it is cut with a torch from half inch sheet steel. Measures 11 1/2" tall at the top of the head and 13 1/2" beak to tail. The base measures 8" x 7 3/4".

This piece is truly remarkable, crude and eloquent, fanciful and dangerous.... it's a knockout.
