About the Artisans:

Moses and his small workshop of craftsmen build their own welding machines out of copper coil, tape, steel rod, and a sheet metal housing in order to create these spectacular, metal works of art. Moses began his artistic career making furniture, but quickly switched to sculpture after an interested European buyer created a demand for his works abroad.

These handcrafted cow sculptures have been transformed from used oil drums by talented metal sculptors in Zimbabwe. Each sculpture will be one of a kind, with its own personality and details. The sculptures can be displayed inside or outside of the home. Each cow is finished with varnish to protect against the elements, though they will develop a patina over time if placed outside.

The large sculpture is limited edition, only a few available. Measures approximately 35" long x 10" wide x 25.5" tall. Due to the handcrafted nature of these items, each may vary slightly.
