The Barrel Shack - Belga the tall standing Crane
A popular symbol of purity, vigilance, and good fortune, cranes evoke positive emotions and Belga the tall standing crane is no exception. Crafted from sturdy iron and finished in a gradient of black and gray, this crane features finely detailed carvings which outline each feather on their back, breast and every scale along their legs. In addition, thick legs and u-shaped stands play a critical role in keeping the statues standing stably. With the head thrown back as if looking to the sky, Belga’s colorful beak is a stark contrast to the body, drawing the eye along the length of the statue. A whimsical addition to any outdoor space.
Every sculpture at The Barrel Shack is assembled by hand. It takes 3 days for each welder to create one unique masterpiece. The welders have 8 years of experience before they are able to create these works of art. The material used to bring these animals to life is iron. The iron is first cut to the particular shape and size, then welded together for assembly. The welded iron is then polished until smooth and treated by a special electrophoresis powder to prevent rusting. The sculpture is then painted and jeweled to bring out the individual characteristics.Size: 35” x 14” x 7”
