This is another in a series of driftwood log found sculpture with a Steam punk twist. I found this walnut piece that resembled a shoen in a river bottom. I then put two pieces of another log together to make the leg and set it high on a live edge base then lifted it with a three and half inch thick walnut with a live edge end piece to give it strenth and let it breath under with another twisted driftwood piece. I then loaded the top leg with old copper to make it look like a busted leg with tendons and bone comming out. I then called it Wounded Warrior after all the Veterns that gave there leg to our freedom. All this and Heaven too.

COOL way of putting it all together!

Thank you.

An apt tribute to the protectors of our freedom that we don’t do enough of. Thank you.
