The wire sculpture shown above was photographed at the American Folk Art Museum in New York. The piece was found - along with approximately 1,500 more just like it - in garbage bags in an alley of an African-American neighborhood in Philadelphia. The artist, known simply as the Philadelphia Wireman, relied on discarded materials such as tape, newspaper, ribbon, glass, buttons, and scrap metal to produce the whimsical creations.
