Armadillo and Behold!

Armadillos may be native to the hotter parts of North and South America, but that doesn't mean you can't raise one of these armored charmers right in your front yard! Spanish for "little armored one," the armadillo is known for its tank-like hide that protects its from predators. Metalsmith VonChandler captures this elusive guarded critter and his rolly-polly appeal in his 2D patinated plate steel sculpture stake. Handmade by Von Chandler in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

  • the maker

VonChandler -

With a winning sense of humor and a great eye for sculpture, artist Von Chandler specializes in one-of-a-kind metalwork that is both dramatic and whimsical. Chandler is a self-described lover of art who wishes he had known his true calling way back in grade school when his intimidating teacher inquired about his aspirations. Now happily married and the proud owner of a home littered with sculptures, he enjoys nothing more than working with his hands and discussing art with other artists. He did once think he'd be a ninja when he grew up, but is kind of glad that didn't happen. collection

    Comments about ARMADILLO LAWN SCULPTURE:

    My mother has a thing for Armadillos, so this was perfect. Its good metal...and that being said, its rusty when you receive it. It goes perfect with a rustic decor look outside in a garden or yard. I'd recommend still spraying this item with a clear lacquer of some kind to prevent any further weather rusting. It always extends the life of most metal decor that is made to be outside. In Texas weather...its highly recommended.

      Comments about ARMADILLO LAWN SCULPTURE:

      I received this as a gift from my mother when she came down to visit me. I was pleased with it as I have a fascination with outdoor critters. I was also pleased that it had a little hood at the bottom which made it easy to plant in the ground.

        Comments about ARMADILLO LAWN SCULPTURE:

        Was horribly corroded on receipt. Looked like it had soaked in salt water. Rust went all over everything when it was unpacked.
        "Patinating" does not do anything for product.
        It was meant to be given as a gift, but I would not have that thing in my yard, let alone give it to a friend.
