The auctioneer bought me a hotdog for taking a wine barrel that had fallen apart at his sale.  Not long after i saw the parts fall into a perfect flower.  The inner circle is the metal that held the wood together.  I put a dried sunflower head within chicken wire and packed the edges with wheat.  Birds came by the dozens to honor my repurposed artwork.
