Grainger McKoy is a sculptor from South Carolina and Recovery is his first outdoor sculpture. He originally carved this 11-foot tall sculpture of a bird’s wing in wood and then had it cast in stainless steel. McKoy is famous for his highly realistic wood sculptures of birds in flight, often in complex compositions.
