The "Queen of Wands" is one of a series I am making based on the Tarot card deck.   Its main component is a rusted catalytic converter cover found in the road. It's an automobile part that fell off an auto. I have a collection of these as I find the shape quite intriguing.  The Queen displays her wands or rods at either side of her face. The dark purple male head found at the bottom of the piece symbolizes her dark side.
