'Oscar', The Lion Sculpture

'Oscar', The Lion Sculpture

Created by a prominent artist in the 1970's out of old car bumpers. The customer brought in 'Oscar' from spending decades outside rusting.

After repairs, then 9 prep and finishing steps - the final finish is a heavy copper plating, oxidized, and hand relieved to accent detail. In the relief process we intentionally brought out some grain and spotting.

It was then lacquered to preserve the finish.

Handsome.
