    Dear All

    Greetings. I found this strange metallic object near a waterfront where I think some fishermen salvaged it and just left it around., Does anyone have any idea what it is or what it depicts? It is made of iron and has greatly rusted..
    Thanks in advance!

    Best to pull your pull your collar THREE times, spin around and spit to get rid of any spell you might have run across taking a picture of this, if indeed it is an object of the occult.

    Good advice.. BUT- be sure to spin deocil, NOT widdershins, or all Hell will break loose!

    Glad you clarified that point Darkwing as it’s easy to assume people know that.

    Edit- what is the recommended procedure if TTA has already spun widdershins?

    Y'all are crazy. It's obviously a peace sign with duck feathers attached.

    Looks to me like an arbor (rebar) for something - maybe for some type of concrete structure/statue????????

    what you show is kindergarten tinkering. there are others that are used for the closed and very heavy metal meshs that are used in oyster farms.

    I wonder where this one here was found and if it's not in the vicinity of an oyster farm. I've seen similar - although not so nicely welded - in Bretagne.

    I've never heard of an oyster tree before, so I thought I'd google it. Honestly, those kindergarten projects were the only thing that came up (granted, I didn't scroll down too far).

    Anyways, I was just joshing ya...I figured you meant something more utilitarian, but google images just wouldn't give me anything more than those crafts.
