Mantis No 42
Completed 7.7.17

This is a very unique, hand crafted, and realistic mechanical Mantis made from the recycled parts of old watches.

Her body is made out of watch strap springs and a red Christmas light bulb.

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

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

Her 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.

The head, thorax, and arms swivel on this sculpture for different looks.

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.

Mantis No 43 measures 25mm wide by 55mm tall by 45mm long. She comes with a 3" by 4" glass dome with walnut base for display. She is extremely fragile and should be handled sparingly and very gently, and is most definitely not a toy.
