Steampunk Leaves Spider by *CatherinetteRings Delicately beautiful, any futuristic Victorian would have been proud to own this stunning spider 'robot'. Very clever Steampunk sculpture. ( Featured by LabyrinthCreations )

I love the way this picture made me come back to it. Looking at it, I love the techniques and the realness of a spider, but yet it is brass and other metals. The colors match perfectly of what a real spider would really look like. The imagination for this spider was just outstanding! I hate spiders, but I really like this spider and would love to have a nice picture of it on my desktop or a molding of it on my desk. I think it would look really cool in one of those moldings. Keep up the good work!!!
