2013 ArtPrize Entry

My piece, Gustave is a homage to the extraordinary crocodile from the Nile river who dons the same name. Gustave was estimated to be 70 years old, 20 feet long and weighing in at 2000 lbs. Its speculated that Gustave has claimed the lives of over 300 people over his 70 years on the Nile. Gustave is made from 100% all recycled material, mostly old hot water tanks. I tired to enter this piece in last years contest, but due to health reasons, I was unable to finish it last year.
