Iron Lung sculpture

Craft & Design

Nigel sent in his mesmerizing “Iron Lung” sculpture from the Mac’s Sculpture Symposium, he writes – “Iron Lung is a mechanical sculpture that I have made as part of the Mac’s Sculpture Symposium in Nelson, New Zealand. 12 artists spend two weeks creating sculpture on site in a public park. The first link is to a short video of my work, the second to construction photos and the third link is to the online auction (various press releases and information on the symposium is available there too as well as pics of some very fine works from the other artists).”Video, photos and auction.
