Endangered Species

Indri (pangolin)
wood/metal/cloth/foam/found objects
14" x 16" x 6"

I've seen pictures of the pangolin in books for years. They are curious creatures, a fish-like animal. They are large and act a little like tree sloths. With all their scales I was attracted to them once I started working with old bike tires.

They are found in parts of Africa and Asia and recently have become endangered. They are hunted both for their meat and their scales, which are thought to have medicinal properties.


  1. This is great. You get such personality into these guy without them looking all cute and cuddly. It's a fine combination.

  2. Nice post - pictures of endangered species ..Keep Posting
