Sculptures of the Echostar XIX, Jupiter 2 satellite. Commissioned by the company that built the satellite to be presented to the CEO’s of Echostar and Hughes Net. They are approximately 19” across, hand carved using 12 different types of wood. There are 63 individual pieces of wood in each sculpture. The bases are Big Leaf Maple burl caps. The satellite was launched on 12/19/2016.
