Mechanical Mantis No 9 (III) by AMechanicalMind Mechanical Mantis No 9 (III) by AMechanicalMind
buy: [link]

His body is made out of watch strap springs and a blue Christmas light bulb.

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

His head is made from a watch dial, bent into shape and onto it are soldered winding stem knobs that act as his eyes.

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.

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: 26mm wide 47mm front to back 40mm tall 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.
