48 inches total - length + height + width?

That wouldn't be an especially large sculpture..

It's finding 48 different materials that will be the challenge.

I suggest searching images in "mixed media sculpture" and see what inspires.

48 inches high.
and gathering materials is the tricky part...
i dont want it to look too cluttered or thrown together.
i did finally get an idea. i'm doing a piece on physical and emotional purging. two pieces that work together as one.
should be interesting, and a challenge!

Here's a website I was trying to find for you earlier of some impressive mixed-media sculptures:

I'm all about papier mache and then incorporating mixed media. It's so versatile! Good luck!
