Crazy Metal Sculptures


These sculptures come from all over the U.S.A. Big ones. Small ones. Lots of Tin Men. A couple of Tin Women. A veritable zoo of animals including elephants and… lobsters? I concentrated on those that are welded, but beyond that, you could look for days.

These are some of the finest specimens of folk art in the country as per this fantastic site.
