Inspired by the absolutely fantastic Steampunk mechanical hand Sculpture by Doktor A.
It shows strong whimsically, Victorian qualities. Lending it to stand as part of the Steampunk movement.
Comically named the “Thing” this found object has mutated into somewhat of an ironic archetype representing all that is wrong in the world, more specifically in our country. The Black Sheep of contemporary society if you will. The title(s) serve as an answer to the only possible question one could ask when confronted with the object: “What is it?” Artist – Laurette de Jager
