'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.
