I gathered all my little scraps of sheet metal and re-rod and welded them into Grass Dancer. I may add some more, but thought I'd show what is done so far. He's a wall hanger.

I was invited to sell my art at a motorcycle happening, so I made "Mori" for the occasion.I had another one made, but he recently found a new home.Winged skulls have been around for a long time and can represent change, the soul rising to heaven, the resurrection of Christ and yes... death, to name a few.Take your pick.As I created "Mori", I thought of several variations, more may follow.

I finally got feathers on Medicine Eagle. The picture is poor, I'll take a better one in daylight. His eyes are brass and held in temp for the picture. I made provisions to hang him like a mount, but after trying to lift him, I know the bracket needs to be made sturdier. Galvanizing is the plan.
