A steampunk master breathing new life into useless metal

Igor Verniy is a talented and creative master of steampunk (in recent years a fashion and lifestyle movement that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery) from Krasnoyarsk, Russia. He makes figures out of almost anything: old components, car parts, watches and domestic appliances.
Before making a new sculpture, he sketches the animal he wants and finds an image of it online. As a result, the finished product is very detailed with a mobile body.
They are not just simple metallic figures, but objects with a moving body and a real skeleton. Nearly all the parts are movable: birds spread their wings, robots walk, bats sleep with their heads down, spiders spin webs, and even this octopus can hold things in each of its eight arms.
Giving birth to a new object is a very interesting process. Just take a look at how this small robot started out…
…. and how cute it ended up
Igor Veniy:
Igor’s works contain a wide variety of animals: birds, including a white pigeon, a scary octopus, a bat, a duck, a butterfly, a huge spider with 14 offspring, a bee with golden legs.
If you look closer: a spider spins web.
Here’s the master himself with one of his creations — a flying robot, which is happy to share the limelight.
