Creating Recycled Garden Art

Fish gotta swim, even in your garden.  Here are three examples of fish made from oil drums and other scrap metal. The first one was made in India.  It's rather intricate because of the individual scales that were spot welded one by one.  This might be too much for the novice welder, but it might give you some ideas.

Georgia artist Richard Jacobus made this graceful garden fish (below) from recycled steel, with a post that allows it to be positioned just about anywhere. 
Here it shows up well against the contrasting wall color.

This painted fish (below) was made in Haiti. It was
recycled from a flattened oil drum and then hand cut and hand painted.
