Ok, since I completed the armature for the giraffe sculpture, I needed a stand of sorts to test my mounting system. I also needed something to hold it stationary while I worked on applying the mache. I build a simple x foot with a 2×4 upright. To this I bolted the hangers I made to slide the base onto. These same hangers will eventually get bolted to the wall when I’m finished with the giraffe. Obviously I had to weight the back side of the stand for balance. Here’s what the armature looks like hanging on it.
What animals have you created art representing?
