I dreamed last night that the piece I built had astro-turf inside its cavity. Perhaps the idea had already been percolating but seeing it in living color in my mind's eye helped push the idea further. Today I added piano wire tendrils capped with golf green studs. Here is the progression. It measures 24" high (without extensions). I'm thinking about an open round metal stand.
Here are some images of the inflatable swan prop tied up. I
like the way it bulges around the string and suggests binding and
inability to move.
