An eight-foot tall buffalo greets visitors at the art department at the Eastern Idaho State Fair. If a visitor looks into the hole on the side of the buffalo, he or she can spot the buffalo's heart that is a circle of spark plugs.
The buffalo is designed and made by Tim Little of Malad. Two other whimsical creations of Little are located inside the art pavilion. Two metal dinosaurs are quarreling in a dinosaur nest. (Who can spot the dinner knife?) The second sculpture is of two horses. (Who can name the most mechanical parts?)
How were you inspired to create your works of art?
"A piston inspired me to build horses," Little said. "It looked like a horse hoof. Horses are what started the metal scrap sculptures direction of my art."
Continuing, he explained, "What inspires the pieces? Sometimes it is the metal part and other times I need to create a commission piece or specific piece."
