A Unique Animal Form Sculpture by Harry Bertoia

Rare early example of Bertoia´s expansive exploration of metal work. Large carpenters nails are assembled in the form of a fantasy animal of insect. The entire surface is coated with a layer of melted bronze. It is extremely rare if not totally unique in Bertoia´s career to depict actual figures. Playful exercise predating the more formal styles that were to develop. 15" H 31" L 12" D
