Overall the sculpture weighs approx 20k lbs.  This was a carefully orchestrated rigging and disassembly task before any refurbishment could take place. All tube/ bristles were repaired, scuffed and repainted. The clasp/ silver section we was retouched and repaired to original specs. All was then reassembled and fixtured for transportation and installation.
