Most of us have seen artwork on a variety of types of saws and blades at the flea markets and other creative venues. A less seen and unknown art form includes shovels.

Not only do artisans put scenery on shovels similar to the way they do on saws, but they also use the shovel for a prop for other art, cut into the shovel, etch the shovel and dismantle the shovel by taking various parts and creating figures from them.

For whatever reason, shovels seem to lend themselves to a variety of art forms, more than seen on other implements. Pretty neat stuff to see put together and worked upon by people of vision.
