"Rattler" is a one of a kind handmade metal sculpture. The core of the snake is a piece of bar stock that has been heated and bent into the coiled striking position. The body is a series of roller bearings applied one at a time & welded on the inside to conceal the weld. Finally the tongue was hammered from a single piece of heavy copper wire. The piece has been sanded, rusted and clear coated - giving it a sealed rusty finish.
