    I bought this at a local auction online for a halfway decent price. It has a really cool sculpture art look to it. I tried searching for something similar online before bidding but just went with my gut since I couldn't find anything similar. Its pretty heavy and still wondering what its made out of. It has 4 holes on the top and a place on the bottom to screw the water line into it. I was wondering if abyone has seen anything similar or might know the maker? Thank you for any info!

    Very cool, @rink28

    Are you going to hook it up and enjoy it? I hope so :)

    Looks like it would work well in a pond.

    In the 7th image down (or next to last) both of those pieces look like they might have writing on them.....the upper piece look like they "could be signatures"??? and the lower piece on the edge looks like some indiscernible letters & maybe numbers.....I couldn't do a lot with either....but I underlined in red where I thought I saw writing on the upper piece.....

    They kind of look like they are/were from some movie, but it eludes me at any rate!!!

    That is one very cool find! I don't know anything about it, but if you plan to drink from it, I caution you not to use a garden hose to hook it to. Slugs found inside of garden hoses carry parasites that can kill humans and pets. Plumb it up properly!

    I wish I could build a bird bath around it in my yard!

    Interesting that you mentioned ravens because now that I look at it. Doesn't it kind of resemble birds in a abstract form?
