Albeit this isnt exactly a “woodworking” project it some what related as I, and friends, removed the hand forged nails from countless building where the timber was re-claimed, saved the nails and now maybe some sincere advice as to……..What to do

Colour, leave them the natural bronze rusty look?……..paint them wrought iron black ?……powder coat them silver ?

Leave them as individual pieces floating from the ceiling? ……or connect them so they stand as a single unit and set it on display ?

I dont have the right lighting to capture a good image but suffice to say it serves the purpose of illustrating my dilemma ?

a sequence of diving positions


1 1/2 twist ?



and lastly……..Entry which still needs the splash, only half a figure
