I think guys are using long threaded rod to piece things together. I like to use Dove tail joints and make the joinery part of the work. I would not just glue pieces together on a big sculpture. I have used some timber locs too and plugged the hide with pieces of branches to make it look like a knot. It would make sense to tack thing together and make sure you done hit metal. Keep us posted.
