W.O.F.

I found this weird object last weekend at an antique/junk store. I couldn't resist him. Actually, I knew my Dad would love him so I pick him up for my Dad's birthday later this month... your not reading this, are you Dad? And if you are.... Surprise!!!!
The guy at the store told me it was a turtle. It's just an old metal pail with a pair of pliers and some bolts welded together. Isn't he cute in a "weird" sort of way?

I love him. I would have picked him up and bought him too.

I was going to say what pigeon said!
I love it; and would have a hard time giving it away.

Love it! I'd be keeping him though. ;)
(Sorry, Dad)

How imaginative. Hope your dad loves it. Wish him a Happy Birthday from us.

I was at an art fair in June and they were selling things like that... little sculptures made out of metal odds & ends... I wanted one, but they were going for HUNDREDS (the larger ones for over a thousand!)

The turtle is really cute. :)

Good WOF! Kinda goes with the metal praying mantis I posted before.

Nice turtle sculpture! I think you should just keep adding to it; create a whole zoo, either your place or your dad's.

If this was real - he would have a heck of a bite!!
