Growing Salvation

Sculptor Matthew Buttrill, 34, of Old Town created this 12-foot high "Growing Salvation" piece of art from local found objects — within a mile radius. He completed the work on Dec. 10 and plans to continue adding to it. The sculpture can seen next to von Brahler Ltd./Gallery, at the corner of Powhatan and Bernard Streets in Old Town. He has another stone sculpture called "Mr. Cool" at Mak's Place near the Braddock Metro Station. For more of Matt's works, go to www.salvagedstructures.com or email: mbuttrill@comcast.net.
