Story Behind the Art:
'Hi, My name is Marco Polo Serrano. Yes, believe it or not, my name is really Marco Polo. I was born in a small artisan town surrounded by handicrafts, as most of my family are artisans. By the age of 13 I had a job in a workshop that made artistic ironwork, and in this way I helped pay for my schooling. When I was 18, I quit working to concentrate on my studies. I got married, and my wife is also from a family of artisans. When I was 23, she and I decided to open our own workshop with a different design concept, utilizing a metal cutter known as a plasma.
In this way, a piece of metal is transformed into a decorative accessory. All my designs are crafted in my own workshop. They arise from my imagination, from dreams, or whatever comes to mind as I begin to work with the metal.'
The handcrafted nature of this product will produce minor differences in design and sizing. Subtle variations will occur from piece to piece, adding to its unique qualities. Measurements may vary slightly.

I like it. I have had a couple of comments that it looks like the face of a blow up doll (which it does), but it is still one of the coolest suns in the neighborhood.Read More
It was what I was looking for except the sun face wasn't painted that well. I ended up changing the copper to a patina finish and I changed the color of the sun face. It really looks rustic now. If you have any artistic ability, you can change it to meet your needs.Read More
