The concrete jungle just got a little more dangerous. Andrew Chase’s collection of steampunk mechanical animal sculptures don’t just look amazing— each one can mimic the real animal’s full range of motion.
This cheetah weighs about 50 pounds and is constructed out of electrical conduit, auto transmission parts, 20-gauge steel and random parts collected from an industrial salvage yard. Chase is a Utah-based freelance commercial photographer, furniture maker and welder, as well as a talented assemblage artist.
His stunning collection of mechanical animals was created using dozens of recycled automobile and plumbing parts. Each animal takes between 80 to 120 hours to complete. I’ll take the whole set please, the old hunting trophy room has been looking a bit sparse of late.
