Auction Item of the Day--29 March

Yes, it has been a few days since Auction Item of the Day has been posted. We had some lag time transferring photos from one person to another. But we are back in business, at least for the next few days to here is the next item that is up for bids in our auction.

This is a sculpture hand- made of hardened fabric that can be kept inside or outdoors. It stands 17 inches tall on a metal base that is 4 X 4 inches. Although the sculpture looks metallic, it is actually fabric. This item goes with any décor and would be particularly stunning on an end table or book shelf.
