Driftwood and Scrap Wood Sculptures

Andries Botha has created more than 20 elephants from recycled materials for his global Human Elephant Foundation, Nomkhubulwane. "What will we do to change how we live? What will accelerate our commitment to create a more sustainable world? How can an elephant catalyze this conversation and expanded commitment? I am hoping Nomkhubulwane will inspire many more people to ask and address these questions."

Baby elephants by Andries Botha.
Conflicted as to his heritage as a white Afrikaans male brought up in the apartheid era, Botha constantly questions his identity in terms of his historical, geographical and political context. Botha oft times uses the term 'cultural citizenship'.

Deborah Butterfield

scours the woods and stream banks near her 500-acre ranch outside Bozeman, Montana for wood. She visits junkyards and foundries, driving near and far for just the right piece of wood or metal. Her early works in the 1970s were of lifelike ceramic horses, since then she has moved to more abstract forms of reclining and standing horses which she sculpts from mud and sticks and weathered metal scraps. www.lalouver.com

The Trojan horse was built close to sea, so I am guessing the carpenters used some driftwood and scrap wood in its construction.
