Many front yards have potted plants, a goose or a gazing globe. For the 4th of July, many folks fly a flag. Not Dan, nope. He has bigger and better ideas!
Dan designed a Statue of Liberty sculpture in opposition of the recent U.S. travel ban. After weeks of designing, Dan first laser cuts a smaller prototype of his sculpture.
The final design was cut on a ShopBot carved on MDF board. Dan never really appreciated “The New Colossus” sonnet until he ended up reading it a hundred times as he prepared the pedestal for the engraving process. He found the full context much more striking than the few words that are regularly recited.
A few coats of paint and a gold leaf flame later, and Dan’s tribute to Lady Liberty was complete.
