Vibrant patchwork warthog sculptures are hand-created by metal sculptors at Tonderai Metal Works, working with used oil drums.

The sculptures can be displayed inside or outside of the home and are one-of-a-kind. Because they are made of metal, the sculptures will develop a patina when exposed to the elements. Colors of sculptures will vary, depending on available oil drums.

Sold singly; three sizes available. Weathering is to be expected if the sculpture is exposed to elements over time. Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary.

Small: 7"L x 3"W x 6"H
Medium: 14"L x 5"W x 9.5"H
Large: 20"L x 9"W x 21"H
