Magdalena Abakanowicz, Stainless Bird on Pole I, II, and III, all 2009, stainless steel.
Constructed from welded pieces of stainless steel, Abakanowicz's colossal birds appear to be avian hybrids, both biological and mechanical in nature. Although the artist finds inspiration in organic forms, she notes, "My imagination produces forms which are not needed in the world of nature."
