from a 'store bought' afro-pick, enlarge and founder/fabricate an 8 foot copy in stainless steel and aluminum. We scanned the original, then printed an enlarged lines plan, from which we went to direct hand carving in MDF board. Fist was cast in aluminum, and tines fabricated from stainless steel solid rod.
Special thanks to Rhode Island School of Design with help foundering the aluminum fist.
