Jules Vern II Inquire about this piece

My welded metal fantasy steampunk airship, ·~ules Vern II,” works and spins like a weather vane, with two propellers on the rear that also spin with the wind. I’ve added many found objects to the ship, such as bike chains and discs, knobs, fruit bowls, gears, fittings and other items. it is built with steel, stainless steel, bronze, brass, copper, and chrome to give it contrast.
