Bird and Rider

I original made the sculpture for attaching to the wall.  I like the way it turned out so I decided to make a kinetic sculpture using the same theme.  The bird has a wing span of 20 inches and the kinetic sculpture is 53 inches high.  The body is a steel pipe which I tapered down for the tail and head.  Most of the items I welded except for the eyes which I brazed.  I did try to weld the eyes on, but I did not like the way it looked.
