Insect is very interesting . As soon as I saw these old spoons in antiquary shop I started thinking about the beetle. That are very old silver spoons raveled until brass and they perfectly fit to this robotized beetle. It also has a clock mechanism which creates additional charm. A tail is one more interesting part. It is a valve of a wind-instrument (trumpet). Hammers of the alarm-clock which beat the sound replace the legs of the beetle. The background has been aged in a blasting method distinguishing a nice wood pattern.
