DARBACIOUS
Hand sculpted from old barbed wire collected from local Montana ranches.  Michael began using gloves to bend and sculpt the barbed wire but soon found the barbs kept catching and snagging his gloves.  The gloves were clearly in the way of his process so he ditched the gloves and used his bare hands.  He quickly found the rhythm.  Holding the wire between the barbs he bent, arched and folded miles of barbed wire into the famous Darbacious bull which is mounted on a stone pedestal at the entrance to the Darby Rodeo grounds in Montana and greets all who enter Darby.  Michael dedicated Darbacious to the Darby Rodeo Association's founder Cal Ruark.

Artist Michael Miller also built a wooden bull on the rodeo grounds with donated scrap wood.  It took only three days for Michael to single handedly build the impressive bull.  The wooden bull doubled as the bonfire. The bull was burned at the annual town BBQ as a symbol of new beginnings and to welcome Darbacious to the Darby Rodeo Association.
