These won’t keep your mail safe from criminals, but we have to admit, they are beautiful… and apparently they will hold their own against a baseball bat!

These mailboxes are hand-crafted by Hemet resident Gary Son.
From the Press-Enterprise:

“Son, whose regular trade is plastering homes, sculpts the tree by bending steel rods of rebar that are anchored in the ground. He covers the framework with metal diamond mesh and then sprays on colored concrete that matches the tones of a tree. He carves grooves in the wet concrete that look like the texture of bark.”

As far as decorative mailboxes go, we think these are pretty cool!
