B Spiderman's "... And I Never Did Get That Pony Either"
Artist: B Spiderman
The concept behind the piece is about the Phoenix heat and how it affects everything down to inanimate objects. Some people look at the heat as a bad thing, but in order to make this piece I had to use over 2000 degrees of heat so I benefited from it. Going off the old saying my friend told me "you don't know your good luck from your bad luck," the heat can be a blessing in disguise.
