Amazingly Created Unique Steampunk Insects – 14 Pics!

Rhino09There are many things in the world that are interesting, beautiful and worthy to tell everybody and these steampunk insects are very unique and creative. Since the late 1990′s style Steampunk is becoming more and more popular, and not only in the literature. Various modern utilitarian objects have been modded by enthusiasts into a pseudo-Victorian mechanical “ Steampunk” style. And often this stylization gives very unexpected results.

Like, for example, art works of american sculptor Mike Libby. His studio Insect Lab make robots from dried insects. Insects for his works come from around the world, from Africa, China, New Guinea, Brazil, Texas, etc. Each cog or gear wheel from antique pocket watches and wristwatches are used as mechanical components. Each small robot from his collection is unique and costs a lot of money – price for the one robot ranges from $600 to $2500.

Here are the unique steampunk insects. Take a look:
