Deborah Butterfield created Orion's muzzle
and jaw from the fender of a car. The art-
ist scavenges for old car parts to transform
into portraits of real, individual horses.
'Working with junk is a way of recognizing
a quality of line and appropriating it to my
sculpture,' She says."

Butterfield, is from Montana and most of her sculptures are of horses...made not only of scrap metal...but also other found materials...such as wood. Read more about her at (visit link)
