|Chain mail art.|
A lovely piece of three-dimensional chain mail art made from aluminum wire. From the source:
This is a sculpture called an "hourglass dodecahedron" (hourglass refers to the basic unit that the piece is built from) and nicely illustrates the sculptural capabilities of chain mail. The rings are 5356 alloy aluminum, which have been etched with sodium hydroxide to give them a frosted look. These make really nice Christmas ornaments, but are very labor intensive.
