Sinister Bug

by Leslie Brier, Brier Design Studio

This recently appeared in my studio. It is a Sinister Bug, believed to have become extinct during the early 1900s. You can click on the photos for a  closer view of its exoskeleton.

I'm not sure what the body originally was. It had a chute, and a wheel that turned. Does anyone out there have any guesses?
Speaking of guesses, that reminds me of contests. Don't forget about my blog hop giveaway. Leave a comment on the blog hop post and one winner will be selected to receieve a fabulous package from Artistic Artifacts, and one of my steampunk bird necklaces. I will draw a number this Friday, February 10.

OMG that bug is the bomb!!! You are amazing and talented beyond belief. I am so lucky as I just signed up for your class in VA to make the robot,..not sure how a teddy bear artist will do working with metal but should be fun. I cant wait to meet you! See you soon.
