Mechanical Dragonfly No 2 by AMechanicalMind Mechanical Dragonfly No 2 by AMechanicalMind
buy: [link]

This is a one of a kind, handmade clockwork Dragonfly made from the recycled parts of old watches.

His wings are made from antique watch faces that have been cut, sanded, and curved into wing shapes.

His legs were created with many different watch winding stems that have been cut into various sizes and soldered at the leg joints using lead free silver bearing solder.

His body is a brass and nickel strap spring soldered to another strap string at the thorax. The end of his tail is a winding stem knob.

His head is a strap spring which has soldered to it two identical winding stem knobs for eyes.

His stand is an antique spring barrel cover with an elegant engraved design.

There is no glue or resin to be found in the piece...everything is soldered into place with metal. This is a one of a kind work of art, never to be exactly reproduced.

Dimensions: 53mm wide by 30mm tall (bottom of base to eyeball height) by 31mm front to back. He comes with a 3" by 4" glass dome with walnut base for display. He is extremely fragile and should be handled sparingly and very gently, and is most definitely not a toy.
