Chase's mechanical sculptures have way more personality than metal should. The soulful eyes of his elephants and giraffes could reflect some futuristic world in which extinct flesh-and-blood animals have been (inadequately) replaced with patchwork gestures at nature. Or perhaps they look lonely because they're intimidated by the flesh-and-blood inspirations of which they are ingenious, but dead, replicas.

Frankly, I don't know what fascinating storyline Andrew Chase has in mind - all I know is I want someone to make a movie from it immediately. Like Wall-E crossed with the Lion King, but please have Tim Burton direct it so it's all dark and steampunky. Thank you.
Via lots of places, most notably Daily Art Muse.
That's pretty cool, but the head of the cheetah is poorly done. It looks more like a dog head than a cheetah head.
I just saw his site a little earlier, but I hadn't noticed the moving cheetah images. I agree that the cheetah's head looks too dog-like.
Very cool. I'd like to own one.
