Charles Fuller Cowles - Hero

Charles Fuller Cowles – Hero

Painted Steel

Minnesota sculptor Cowles created an animated figure that pays tribute to the farmer and farm life. He uses tools and parts of farm equipment and farm machinery colors to create this effect. The piece is made of sheets and rods of steel welded and bolted together and then painted using the colors of a John Deere tractor.
