I started this post by collecting large scale sculptures from across the globe, most were of creatures and people rather than abstractions.

My search then stumbled into the smaller sculptural creatures and wonderful moving steampunk creations by Igor Verniy.

Igor Verniy

From heaps of scrap metal, old bike chains, and silverware, Russian metal artist and steampunk sculptor Igor Verniy creates birds, butterflies, and other unusual creations.

Many of his steampunk and cyberpunk sculptures are made to be fully articulated, with dozens of moving or adjustable parts enabling each piece to be posed in several lifelike positions.

“The 22-year-old master Igor Verniy graduated from Moscow State University, he is an engineer in the field of metal, a specialist in the evolution of stars and astrophysics.
