Assemblage -The Bounty



Just finished this piece about a week ago and have him hanging about the house so I can get a feel for his presence. Usually when I create an assemblage, I like to randomly place them throughout the house so I can get a feel if they need anything added or taken off.
Again I used empty gun shell casings for the upper arms and a lense from an old pair of binoculars for the head. I also placed a clay face inside of the lense. Everything else is found objects or old hardware pieces.

Thanks so much for your comments!
The piece actually came together for me at the last minute after working with it for a while.
I like moments like that even though it's a struggle to get to that point!
