A STATUE OF GRAND OLE OPRY STAR MINNIE PEARL FROM CHICKEN WIRE
Artistic Signature: Crafted by Ricky Pittman, in the spring of 2016.
The art piece stands impressively with dimensions of 8 feet in height, a width of 3.5 feet, and a length of 9 feet. Although the exact number of rolls remains uncertain, the chicken wire used, each measuring 18 inches and 150 feet per roll with a weight of 16 pounds, accumulates to an approximate weight of 500 pounds. The robust frame of the sculpture is skillfully crafted using 1/2 inch rebar and reinforced with 9 gauge wire. Together, the combined materials bring the total weight of the piece to an estimated 650 pounds. Interestingly, the entire structure comprises a single, cohesive segment.
