Andrew Chase Giraffe

I’ve always rather liked the giraffe, and this marvellous 6ft tall, steampunk sculpture by artist Andrew Chase has made me like the long necked funniosity even more. Taking over 80 hours to build this fine fellow owes his body to a cleverly composed concotion of transmission parts, electrical conduit, plumbing pipe and a whole series of gears and levers that grant the giant giraffe the jointal movements of his not so metallic counterpart. Andrew Chase has then produced some mighty fine steampunk art featuring his gear-giraffe.

To see some other examples of creatures both real and imagined that have been steampunked by the talented Mr Chase, check out his website www.andrewchase.com
