Hampton House Flowers

Hampton House Flowers

Des Moines, Iowa

These flowers, leaves, birds, caterpillar, and turtle are carved from Locust. The carving is fourteen feet high, and is located in front of the Hampton House at 42nd and Grand in Des Moines, Iowa. The "critters" have some stain to help them stand out from the flowers and leaves. The darkened areas are burned to help give the sculpture more depth and definition.
