The gorgeous rustic and distressed metal-art raptor sculpture is in great condition. The larger matte-blue head has a gorgeous faint patina developing. With this, the blue pitchfork - tail feathers - in the rear provides balance and depth to this gorgeous metal decoration. Also, the remainder of the body of this very unique metal bird sculpture has a beautifully aged black appearance. While this metal raptor sculpture is being listed here as a decorative sculpture/statue, it can also be referred to as yard art or garden decor. However, metal pieces will eventually succumb to the weather. Hence, it would last much longer and be a better investment for the interior of a home.
Please note that the metal pitchforks on this welded metal-art sculpture are actually sharp. So, it would not be recommended for a home with young children unless it was placed in a secure location or securely hung from a ceiling.
There are no discernible marks for identification on this gorgeous metal raptor sculpture. However, by considering the thicker welds it was most likely done by an amateur welder. However, most metal sculptures do not extensive Tig-style welds as the joints are smaller, much more simple, and in most instances bear less weight. With this being said, the amount of artistry, imagination, and overall talent used to produce this gorgeous metal bird sculpture is truly amazing.
While the metal-art raptor sculpture will stand-alone on the two feet at the bottom, the sculpture should be secured by either attaching the feet to the floor or by simply attaching the metal feet to a wider wooden foot. The notched design of the metal feet would make this more easier than a simply square post design. Also, if this winged-bird sculpture is going to hung from the ceiling, there are plenty of places for adding an attachment.
There are no loose sections on this gorgeous metal-art sculpture. The sections are very secure and well-attached. There are vintage wear, age, and rub places on this gorgeous welded metal-art raptor sculpture/statue - mainly in the form of a rustic and distressed appearance. While the sculpture has been lightly cleaned, there are some areas that appear to have dust or dirt inside the pores, cracks, and/or crevices of this gorgeous sculpture.
The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous metal-art raptor sculpture are many. The entryway and living area would be enhanced by the addition of this gorgeous rustic and distressed metal-art statue. Also, this metal-art sculpture would make a great piece from which to hang string lights. In addition, whether it is displayed lower-down or higher-up, this would make a perfect industrial and/or country farmhouse decoration.
The collector will appreciate this gorgeous metal-art raptor sculpture for its great condition, rustic and distressed appearance, and stunningly unique design.
This gorgeous rustic and distressed metal-art raptor sculpture weighs approximately 22 pounds.
The beautiful winged bird metal sculpture measures approximately 35.75" tall x 41.5" wide from wingtip to wingtip x 34.25" in total depth.
The two metal feet on which this metal raptor sculpture stands on measure approximately 28 3/8" apart from the front of the front of the front foot to the back of the back foot.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
