The Monsters in My Head

don krauss's avatar don krauss

This little Beast was made from used auto parts, stainless steel mufflers, I used three different mufflers for the scales. Each one was cut and hand shaped. The eyes are lab made rubies ( custom made by Kay Jewelers ). The rubies have sterling silver settings, The backings are welded into the inside of the heads, they can be taken out and worn. The frame work and toes are made from sway bar links. He has broken out of the chains that have bound him from freedom. This Is the third Monster from my head I have made, one is in Texas and one is in China. On the tongue is engraved my name and the year made. It took a little over 300 hours to make. It does stand flat ( no wobble).
