Mechanical Menagerie: The Creepers and Crawlers
There are lots of artists doing interesting and often Steampunkish things with insectoid forms, or even the insects themselves. Check out my gallery of just a smattering of these amazing works of art.
Like what you see? Check out some of my other “Mechanical Menagerie” posts about undersea creatures, birds and our four-legged friends.
Wow, these are splendiferous!

reminds me of the dragonfly spaceships you got in the sci fi series “Lexx”

I wasn’t familiar with Lexx but I looked at some images just now. Really cool!

The scorpion looks particularly menacing with all its spikes and black parts, but my favourite is probably the spider with the lightbulb abdomen – I imagine it biting into power lines so that it can glow and attract a mate.

Haha, I like that idea. I thought that one was really awesome too. I can’t get over how small most of these pieces are! The precision craftmanship is stunning

These are beautiful. I like the idea of a spider with a lightbulb body.
