This is really just a car strung up between some trees. It's the work of a local artist who specializes in creating art with everyday objects. I love walking around his place and looking at his work, he told me that because the north American indians no longer have any animals left to hunt, they now have to hunt cars and skin them :) I thought it looked like a dream catcher. Thanks for the kind votes and comments.

I'm pretty sure that's the first time I ever see a car used that way. Unusual to say the least! Great entry, perfectly fitting the challenge. Congratulations on the nice finish.

It's an art object, created by a crazy artist type in John's vicinity :-) Nothing expert here... And oh, yeah, congrats john!

Did someone construct this or is it digitally created? Either way, an incredible shot.
Congrats on the HM!

This is an incredible find. I love the creepy doll "caught up" in this.
Not sure if this is something that you actually have found hanging somewhere or if it's just an incredibly well edited image, either way i love it!!!

This wins for me, the creative thought behind it is brilliant, the dreamlike execution is terrific, and the baby doll head and ladder in the back seat exemplify the type of detail that really makes this a winner.
