The enlargement rights are a separate issue. Contact me to discuss those fees. My maquettes are designed so any competent metal fabricator can build the enlargement. It is just a matter of measuring off the maquette and cutting the pattern shape out of flat sheet metal, bending it and welding into the appropriate boxes. These sculptures are all made of a series of odd shaped boxes that are welded together. Hire your own fabricator and build it close to where it is going to be used and save on mega transportation problems.
