These are the moss sculptures handmade from sturdy steel frames that replicate the distinct physical features of a selection of canine breeds. Ideal for year-round outdoor use, each frame is made from 5/64"- to 5/32"-thick steel wire, double-coated in a weather- and rust-resistant epoxy. Accurately sized according to the breed it represents (height measured from the shoulder), each topiary faithfully depicts recognizable body shapes, tail lengths, ears, and facial characteristics. Using the moss as a planting medium, each topiary can house annuals, perennials, cacti, or vegetables. Minor assembly.
