Here's the description of the components of the Pineapple Head

This guy stands about 22 inches tall.  So starting at the top - forged railroad spikes on a rear end gear from a 72 maverick, a valve from a fire engine with the hibiscus flower on both sides carved in with a die grinder, the eyes were formed by cutting slits in the eyes and getting the metal red hot and bending it out, then capping it with a thin strip of steel.   The nostrils are a plumbing fitting, and the body of the nose was shaped with a lot of welding and grinding.  The teeth are made out of a recycled trailer securing system.  and he is sitting on a flange from the rear axle of same ford maverick.  The patina is a force rusting technique that is then clear coated a couple of times.
