Giant Steampunk Dragon Made from Salvage

Bangkok based Kreatworks makes steampunk-based sculptures, and this dragon is particularly striking. It’s composed of auto parts and other scrap material that were just lying around, and certainly casts an imposing figure. In order to prevent the creature from rusting, it’s covered in a protective lacquer.

    I am at awe from such craftsmanship!

    Very Cool, but how is it Steam Punk? No copper, leather, wood, steam power, valves, etc? I do not see how this is modern technological outcomes using Victorian technology?
    Impressive craftsmanship none the less.

      I was thinking the same thing. But you know, if its made from re-purposed metal bits it’s steampunk!

    2. Made: a mistake says:

      I agree. This piece IS very cool (kudos to the artist!), but not very steampunk.
