Giraffe Mechanics

Written by Thomas Baekdal | 2009-04-05 03:16:29

Andrew Chase has created yet another masterpiece. It started out with Timmy, then the mechanic elephant, and now, the mechanic giraffe.

As Andrew wrote: "This is my second giraffe (I made the first one to use in "Timmy"). I made it out of transmission parts, electrical conduit, and plumbing pipe. All the joints rotate and lock. Turning a removable crank on the Giraffe's side raises the neck. Lifting the tail releases a catch and lowers the neck. It's about 6 feet tall and it took about 80 hours to build. This is the first sculpture I've put up for sale. Right now he's at a crafts fair in Texas, asking price is $6000."

6 feet tall! That is just amazing.
