Mechanical Mantis No 7 by AMechanicalMind Mechanical Mantis No 7 by AMechanicalMind
buy: [link]

Mantis No. 7 was created from discarded watch parts by Chicago artist Justin Gershenson-Gates. The wings are made from cut, sanded, and shaped watch faces. A blue Christmas tree bulb serves as the abdomen. A dial soldered to a spring bar comprises the thorax. The head is a watch face with watch winding stem knobs serving as eyes. The legs were created from winding stems connected to spring bars at the body. Mantis No. 7's arms are composed of watch faces curled around winding stems, to which are attached small watch plate pinchers with gears. Measures 1" wide by 1.5" long and 1.5" tall. This sculpture includes a 3" x 4" protective glass dome and walnut display base. Soldered using lead free, silver bearing solder.
