Destroying Beauty

Starting with the idea of what a Toucan's bill might look like, I carved a piece of wood into the shape seen here. After covering it with tin and screws, I painted it with red paint and then an overcoat of white. Most of the paint has been sanded off, then the tin has been rusted.

The piece, TOCO, actually looks more like a whale's fin, encrusted with barnacles and a weathered patina.
