Artist brings 'bobcat' to Santa Rita

Special to the Town Crier

Due to the work of a few sixth graders, an entire student body now possesses a bobcat.

However, BOBCAT, now on display in front of Santa Rita Elementary School on Los Altos Avenue, is not a living ball of fur and fangs.

Made by Los Altos sculptor Hardy Jones from a collection of old tractor wrenches, blunt nails, auger and truncated crow bar, the sculpture was presented to the school on a recent Friday morning assembly.

At students' invitation, Jones completed his rendition of a bobcat, Santa Rita's school mascot. To show their appreciation, the sixth grade class raised funds to pay for a brass plaque, now placed at the base of the sculpture.

For the past 25 years, Jones, a former orthopedic surgeon, has been creating art from other people's junk.
