  The fact is that each and every casting in this series is in reality 30 individual castings that are smithed together, tailor fitted with all the moving parts, milled, forged, assembled, finished, and patina. This makes each casting individually tailored and hand crafted, numbered, and personalized. No two are the same in the same way that no two art collectors are the same. It's an honor to have a living legend purchase #001.
Also available in a different patina
