After seeing so many antelope roaming by the highways on the way to Colorado, I made this piece called "Guentheri."

I also see him in a natural history museum display with a gorgeously painted backdrop. A text on the wall states: "This small (36" x 26" x 16") curious creature had ears, a tail and its hooves made from mountain bike tires. Pipe clamps hold on the hooves. On his leg an old odometer still calculates all the miles it travels on the open plains. Rusted tin, an oly eye piece, screws and found objects have attached themselves to his wooden antlers.
