Mixed metals covered bridge wall sculpture from Jere. A masterfully executed exercise in perspective and (as usual) laced with wit, the viewer is instantly transported to another place and time when one could leave their rowboat 'down by the bridge', unlocked, unchained, and un-alarmed, and it still would be there in the morning. Or in six months. No hurry here folks...the run-down, or at the very least "unattended" nature of the bridge is so perfectly captured here that it makes me want to find it and fix it. But that's not how it is -- these bridges seem to just go on and on and on, no matter how unstable they look. Just make sure you weren't the last one who used it...
Mint condition, signed on front in black and on also etched in a metal plaque on the back.
