more metal


here is an image i was considering for this month's theme day. this metal cocoon sits at the corner of el molino and walnut. i'm sure there is a name for this sculpture, but i don't know it... does anyone out there know?

update: thanks to palm axis for informing me that this artwork is by mark lere.

I don't officially know what it is, but my daughter calls it "that weird silver thing."
