In the Style of Calder

In 9th grade art class, we were told to choose an artist and create a piece of artwork in his or her style. I chose one of my favorite artists Alexander Calder, and therefore created an abstract sculpture in his style. This one is made out of metal(some silvery, easy to cut, but firm kind), held together by some kind of bolt thing(thanks to my dad), and spray-painted black.
This specific type of piece is known as a stabile, compared to the mobile, which (fun fact!) was invented by Alexander Calder himself.
My piece still remains unnamed.
