Heavy Metal Beatle
Heavy Metal Beatle Detail

I know grasshoppers aren't beetles (much less beatles) but I still like the name. This adorable little beastie is "made of metal, the body being a rail spike, the antenna horse shoe nails and the legs welding rod. I have left it in its natural finish, the color variations in the metal are from heating. I used welding and brazing to put it all together. The lighter color around the eyes is silver braze used to attach the metal eyes to the spike. I have put a coating of varnish on it to prevent rusting."

Approx 9" long by 5.5" high
weights about 1 lb
