Dreamkeepers Junk Sculpture

A thirty foot metal sculpture, commissioned by Don Warren, designed by Doc Evermore (Tom Every). The sculpture was originally called The Love Birds because of the shape of their necks from the right angle forms a heart. "The most photographed sculpture in Madison."

It's made from materials from Madison businesses, including Warren Heating and Air Conditioning (tin snips that form the beaks, blowers that are the bodies of the birds and still turn on a windy day), The Badger Drive-in (the legs that held up the drive in movie screen), and Fiskers (the wings made of hedge clipper blades).
