    A very interesting bunch of sculptures- totally made out of bullets, shells, and a few firearms.


    Some are a little off the wall, but the artist is from California....

    those sculptures are actually quite beautiful.....

    ....i just pray he used reproduction lugers in his church sculpture and not the real thing :eek:

    while I think those are morbid and a waste of firearms, I can appreciate the artistry involved

    Sculptures don't kill people...


    Guns don't kill people, sculptures...:confused: Nevermind.

    Absolutely amazing. Adding this guy to the list of artists that I'll never be able to afford work by...

    That's pretty cool.

    He used distributor camshaft gears on one of the sculptures. That trigger finger II one.

    I like it. Being that he's from California, do I have to wait 10 days after passing a background check to buy a sculpture?

    Sorry, those are creepy. Skeletal remains should be buried.

    Interesting. The "Trigger finger of Santo Guerro (VIIII)" has Polish air pistols in it.

    The use of bones in the work is creepy as hell though. :scrutiny:

    Pretty cool. Think they would look cool at the tattoo shop. My home not so much.

    Human remains have been used for centuries in artwork. While somewhat macbre there is no denying the beauty of certain pieces. These pieces are pretty cool but for something truly beautiful look up pictures of the various catacombs and bone cathedrals in eastern Europe. Simply astonishing to behold.

    That's some awesome work. I'd love to have one of the reliquaries, but I'd remove the bone and put something else in it's place. I don't know, Grandpa's pocket knife or Daddy's cufflink or something.

    Who is Santa Guerro supposed to be, anyway?

    Pretty impressive. I'll bet they're quite heavy.

    Planetaries. The sun gear is at the bottom.

    The leg bone one has a ring and pinion at the bottom, a gear from a manual transmisson at the top (synchro guide and all) and a straight cut gear that I can't positively identify. There are a couple of flex plates in the femur sculpture.

    Santa Guerro can be either something along the lines of 'Saint of War'. If he means that it should be Santa Guerra.

    Otherwise guerro is spanish slang for 'a really sterotypical white person' in which case this would be 'Saint Stereotypical White Person'

    Based on the context, I am sure that he means "Saint of War."

    I think they're awesome, and really interesting and well made.
