Artist's description:

My flying saucer with alien family is a close rendition of what I saw that day they came to take me away. Fortunately they did return me to Earth, unharmed. Some of my friends say this explains a lot about me, though I’m not sure what they mean by that. The Aliens were very kind to me and actually gave me exclusive manufacturing rights to make copies of their ray guns, robots and space craft for the entire planet Earth. The top half of my little saucer lifts off and reveals a cozy resting place for the aliens in their travels through space. A boarding ladder drops or folds up inside to keep the aliens secure. I sculpted the original pattern of the spaceship out of hard styling clay, which is also used in the automotive industry to make prototypes. A series of molds are made from the original clay models until a rigid pattern is made which is called a match plate. Then I poured aluminum or bronze into the sand molds.
