Hammer horror

This nail-studded knight is the result of an early 20th century fund raising effort in Vienna. Each nail was hammered home at the cost of a donation. An easily transported idea, a wooden sculpture of an art world figure of note could easily be used raise funds for purchases, new gallery wings or artist residencies. Get the right person to serve as subject for the figure, and your fund-rising’s nailed.
