What do you do with a salvaged cow horn, some tin cans, a bowl, the top to metal container, and a pair of boots? If you’re Dan Towell of Hamilton Montana, you create “Friar Corvus” or as I like to call it, one odd bird.
This one of a kind handmade wooden core sculpture stands a commanding 20” tall and features hundreds of hand cut tin feathers, that one can only assume resulted in needing no less than three Band-Aid’s and a tetanus shot to create.
The mighty birds’ metal hat shields the sun from his authoritative eyes which survey the land through a pair of vintage glasses perched atop his mighty horned nose.
Could something more creative have been done with the sum of all these salvaged parts? I doubt it.
