“It really speaks to the industrial and commercial evolution of the nation.”

“I see it as a commentary of our dependence on foreign oil through automotive transportation.”

“Here’s the artist, let’s ask him. What inspired you to make this piece?”

“Well, I was working as an automotive engineer before the economy crapped out. I lost my job and I needed a way to pay the bills, feed my family. So I took whatever junk was lying around and put it together to see if someone would buy it as art.”
