I found this rusty thingy in my house's basements. Don't ask me what it is supposed to be, I have no clue :)

Anyway, I decided to use it as some kind of prison's bars:
- First, I optimized its rustiness by putting it in and out of salty water for a few days
- Then, I build a wooden structure to hold it vertically
- I also constructed some fake walls on the sides and above, so that the light wouldn't come from there since prison usually have roofs and walls :)
- Self shot, using a timer.
