Hello there,

Last spring, I found a stunning metal bracelet at a flea market, and the second I saw it, I knew I had to make this sculpture. The bracelet makes this fellow's horns, and I couldn't resist leaving that mighty chain and hook in place. This is El Toro. He's made with dark annealed wire in several gauges. His tail is also a bracelet that was some sort of wire weave. I unraveled part of the bracelet, then added additional wire, to give him that tuft of curly hair at the tip of the tail. El Toro measures about 11.5 inches long by 5.75 inches tall by 6 inches wide.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking!:)

Firstly brilliantly made and conceived Jenna. The chain and hook are really symbolic of the horror of bull fighting.

I love the bull and the way you've used the bracelet for his horns! I'm afraid I don't like the chain and hook though - it looks to me like he's struggling against it. The pose of the bull is wonderful. :)
