Re: 1.5m spike statue could go Kerplunk

Damn thats pretty. But Landseer's right. Better stay on top of the corrosion. Think about the millions that are spent by entities to keep bridges alive...and they are painted. Other giant steel sculptures can get away with less upkeep because they do not involve so many joints that are under constant load (by design). Now if they can put a man on the moon then they can figure out a way to cast this thing SOLID. Then you never have to worry - it will fall apart during a later century when mankind has solved all the problems caused by gravity.
