The Mother of all Guitars!

Pretty cool guitar, no?  Wouldn't you love to have it in your yard or house?

This metal sculpture is the work of Dale Rogers.  Since 2000, Rogers has been a working sculptor who shapes stainless steel, steel and aluminum into beautiful works of art.  He creates pieces for both home and garden as well as functional items such as chairs, tables, wine racks, etc.
The pieces he was selling at the American 
Artisan Fair were HUGE.  I asked my husband to stand near the guitar so you could get some idea how big it is.  Michael is about six-feet tall, and the guitar appears to be at least twice as tall.  You better have high ceilings if you want the guitar in your house!  :-)

The dog (left) is not quite as big. . .maybe about 10 feet tall.

I prefer the dog to the guitar. :-)

But unfortunately, I don't have any space for either one of them.

I too have room for neither, but I would happily like to see them on the mountain tops here for the tourists.
