Pill Bug ,No.2 by ou8nrtist2 Pill Bug ,No.2 by ou8nrtist2
The first one went out the door so quickly I barely had a chance to enjoy it,so I've made another a bit smaller 3 1/2 inches dia.
Welded stainless steel and silicon bronze.

Again I must thank Blepharopsis for his most excellent reference photos...
He truly has a most remarkable talent with MACRO...

The little blue spot on the eye is merely the reflection of the blue sky when I shot the piece outside...

This piece is available for purchase.
Please note me for pricing.

It's actually a Miniseries from the late 90's. It's a pretty screwed up Sci-Fi series (Germany/Canada). Not to be confused with the much weaker series following it.
Lexx is trashy and shouldn't be taken seriously, lol. But it features a lot of insect-theming and the final confrontation takes place against a titanic insectiod ship, which looks an awful lot like your sculpture.

Give it a try if you can find it, copies seem to be pretty rare.
Amazon is out of it:

Might be lucky at eBay or something, although I wouldn't spend too much money on it. It's trashy, entertaining and pretty obscure, but not so great as to spend a few hundreds on it, lol.

I gave up TV in 1987 with pot and beef...LOL,
the three things that were slowing me down (in different ways) and keeping me from actualizing my dreams...
I'm now fully cleansed of the detritus those electrons cause...LOL

Very nice, especially considering the materials you used. Reminds me of the Gigashadow in Lexx:The Dark Zone...
