Space Invasion (Copper-colored Acid Patina)
Commissioned work frequently gives me the opportunity to study creatures often much maligned. Rattlesnakes fill a 3.5 MILLION year old niche in nature, keeping rodent populations in check. They, in turn, are food for hawks, eagles, ravens, roadrunners, kingsnakes, bullsnakes, badgers, coyotes, bobcats, alligators and bullfrogs! However, humans are their greatest threat. Mostly nocturnal creatures, they are reluctant to be active below 40° or above 94°, during windy periods or full moonlight. On days when temperatures reach over 70°, you may see them sunning on rocks in the mid-afternoon. They live most of their secretive lives in cool dark rodent burrows and deep rock crevices.
Here this sculpture is shown in yet another patina than the coloration selected for the permanent collection of The Wildlife Experience Museum, Parker, Colorado (Now UC Denver South), and the permanent collection of Na ‘Āina Kai Sculpture and Botanical Gardens in Kauai, Hawaii.
