Copper & Zinc Cow Weathervane
The evaluation of a weathervane often juxtaposes the aspects of a vane that are manufactured with the impact of their exposure to the elements. Sometimes you are fortunate enough to have a weathervane that is singular in its presentation. This one has the benefit of the human hand. A zinc weathered head with nice horns and ears is soldered to the copper body. Besides the significant size of the body, the other dramatic quality of the hand-punching of the body creates an impression of hair throughout the frame. The weathervane rests on a black iron stand.
