In the future, all of the forests have been cleared and destroyed. The animals that once thrived there no longer exist. People will construct machines to remind them of what they used to have. This relic is an example of what is to come if we continue on such a destructive path. Please support conservation and green life style changes.

This mechanical toucan is constructed using Aves Fixit Sculpt, a 2 part epoxy clay. The clay is applied over an aluminum wire and mesh frame covered with several layers of paper mache. He is painted with acrylics and sits atop a real wood perch. The base is constructed of a wood panel center with pieces from an old shipping pallet on the outside for the look of an old crate. If you would like to see progress photos of how this piece was constructed from start to finish, please visit my blog.

This piece stands just over 4 feet tall in total. The base is 13"x13". There is a motion sensor that activates the lights in the eyes and chest.

All of the lighting and wiring was done by my husband, Joe Coleman (:iconphantom42:).

The decorative wood work was done by Mike Marras.
