Insect mantis

Insect Mantis. A fantastic insect. I created it using Moskvitch tail lights and fragments of bicycles, car radio antennas and other parts that I found. The shape of the Praying Mantis’s body and its aggressive appearance are very effective and a favorite subject for many artists. This insect captivated me as well. My favorite’s are the beetles and insects sculpted by Edouard Martinet. I admire his creativity and his amazing technique. Insect mantis a good choice.
