    Here is a piece of art from Bart Soutendijk, a local artist. He is donating a piece to a charity auction that my wife runs every year. I saw his stuff and thought that a sculpture featuring cards or suits might be cool. He then showed me this piece. His art is wire wall hangings that are powder coated. This piece is 31 x 55 inches, but he said he could make it in other sizes. The poker theme is kind of subtle, but I think it's cool. It's called "Face Cards" or "Jack, Queen, and King."

    Very cool! I like it!

    Is it framed, or is each "card" hung separately from the wall?

    I think each is hung separately, but at this point I've only seen the jpg above. He is delivering a sculpture for the auction this week, so I'll see them then.

    That is a nice piece. Do you have any of the artists other works (pics, link, etc.)?

    At that size (nearly 3ft by 6ft) about $1500. Not cheap, but it's a one of a kind sculpture. There may be similar pieces, but each will be unique. Also, the price is dependent on the size.
