I ran across this sculpture in front of a Harley-Davidson Store. The detail is exquisite. I had to take a lot of shots because of reflections from the glass enclosure. The plaque reads:

Presented by Pacific Harleyl-Davidson
TURBO
Artist: Michael Cooper


This original and all-wood sculpture is constructed of twenty two different species of hardwoods. It is based on the Harley Davidson chopper style motorcycle featured in the 60's classic film Easy Rider starring Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper.
Tudrbo has over 5000 wooden parts each meticulously shaped and integrated. Approximately three years of painstaking labor was required to complete this masterpiece.

As a woodworker I can really appreciate the work that went into that piece. As a photographer I can really appreciate the frustration with it being behind glass.

Thanks for the photos.

That's just plain AMAZING. The artist did a great job, seeing the chain drive really blew me away (all those little pieces). Cool and interesting...so glad you posted this wooden GEM.

:thumbup: It's amazin' the talent people have out there in this ol' world. What craftsmanship of a materpiece this is....

Thank you so much for capturing all the photos you could to share with everyone. I know it had to be a challenge to shoot them with the glass case protecting it.

BRAVO! to the artist and photographer

My son has just switched careers from IT to HD specialist mechanic. Just sent images to him as I know he would appreciate them. Thanks.
