My daughter was recently in the high desert of Northern New Mexico and spotted a small rattlesnake. Her picture of the creature made it look precious and beautiful like a small Turkish rug.
I have not made many snakes, finding them complicated and beyond my imagination but after seeing this one, I made "Gallopavo Unwinding." His body is wrapped in lead, then the diamonds are made up of blue tin, mountain bike tires and screws and bolts. His tongue is a cocktail fork and I used old beads for his eyes along with rusted stuff hanging off of him.
