MERCURY GOD HEADS, Left and Right facing
The dilemma here was that the mercury head always faces to the left, and my client needed a matched pair that faced left and right. They were to grace the front fender of a high end, highly customized show car (a 1951 Mercury), and both needed to face towards the front of the car.
It was a challenging project to build in CAD. Working off the design of the car’s hubcap, I gradually sculpted the familiar figure.
I was gratified by my client guitarist Jerry Horton of Papa Roach’s words, “They exceeded my expectations, they really set the car off!”
