Score - the finish ???????

I have thought and thought and thought about how about the specific application of Concrete and wire on the piece. Last week I did a small piece to experiment with the materials. For simplicity sake I used plaster instead of white Concrete and every type of wire in my arsenal.

I am considering this application. It has a thin layer of plaster over the lath. Next I added the wire that creates the volume, movement and energy of the figure. Some of the wire is covered in the concrete. 

The wire I used on the tail feathers and wings I plan on using to create the sound made by the violin.
