Making an anvil out of reclaimed oak

I made an anvil out of oak. It's a metaphor for objecthood and utility. It's a taking a useful, intractable thing like an anvil, and turning it into a decorative useless object. The wooden anvil grants a sort of quixotic hat-tip to things that are actually useful and hard to resist, like memory, time, the ocean or outer-space. A kind of reversal is happening. Also, I think it looks really cool.
