The 45-by-35 foot Rankin Deer Head sculpture has been at Carrie Furnace for more than a decade and has become integrated into the landscape.

Six to eight main artist worked on the sculpture every Sunday throughout the course of a year from October 2007 to October 2008, with other helpers coming in for a day or two.

The sculpture was made from recycled materials found on the site such as steel tubing, steel structural metals, cooper wire and rubber hoses.
