Horse head sculpture: Aurum

It took me a month to finish this piece. It's a fully carved horse head made of pine, with mechanical parts... i hope you like it.

Great stuff!
Looks like there are motors and things. Does it move?

thanks for noticing... no, none of the motors and mechanical parts work or move; everything there is purely for aesthetic purposes only...

here's something else i made a few months ago...this guy doesnt move either.

How many horse power is that unit? ................

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

The integration of the wood carving and the mechanical stuff has a very nice and unique effect, even a philosophical connotation (horse and horse-power)!
