Jeff de Boer is a Calgary-based multi-media artist with an international reputation for producing some of the world's most original and well-crafted works of art. With an emphasis on metal, he is best known for such bodies of work as suits of armour for cats and mice, armour ties and sword-handled briefcases, rocket lamps, pop culture ray guns and exquisite high art.

These four cowboy structures were made for the Crossiron Mills Mall north of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, during its expansion in late 2009. The attention to detail for each of these statues is truly extraordinary and, looking closely at each of these steel exoskeletons, one can't help but imagine the amount of effort that went into sculpting each of them.
