Here is a new piece by Lockwasher, one of my favorite artists. His found-object sculptures are sublime. Part of the fun with his work is recognizing where all the parts came from. In the case of this robotic bug:

Fashioned from – pneumatic spark plug cleaner, Illinois license plate, shoe trees, lawn sprinkler, bicycle brake levers, model airplane engine cylinder, mt. bike suspension pivot and old typewriter parts. 10″ tall x 12″ wide x 16″ long
