You know all the junk and scrap metal lying around up in the shed.
I’m sure you could come up with something like this 😊
Officially known as Powder the Plow Horse but often referred to as Steam Punk Clydesdale or Mechanical Horse. Built by equine sculptor Dixie Jernett (whose website seems to no longer be available)
Here is a source of information on various (read that as many) interesting sculptures and installations around Calgary.

I love, love, love that sort of upcycling (and am a fan of steampunk). I am also awed at the vision and dedication of the artists.
I’ve seen a few of these kinds of sculptures
Makes me want to get a hold of hubby’s welder and go to town. Only I’m such a clutz I’d probably burn the place down lol
That is amazing! What an accomplishment!
Wow! This is so gorgeous. I love it. It’s triggered a memory I remember of an artwork made of junk that was in the Chicago EPA building that was awful. AWFUL! I shall have to write a post about it later and link it to your wonderful statue.
Steam Punk Clydesdale…..love it.
That is a true delight!
Now that is upcycling done right! I like the ‘Steampunk Clydesdale’ title the best.
I LOVE it!! Wish I could see it in person. But second-best, seeing it here. Thanks for sharing!
Awesome! I’d love to see it in person. But the next best thing is seeing it here. Thanks for sharing with us.
