Mantis is the result of several pieces coming to mind then together to create this bug like form. My work in 2-d or 3-d often comes from this additive montage/collage method. The wood of the “feelers” is from a Saskatoon berry bush. The end mass is mulberry and the middle is an unknown hardwood. The legs are steel. Everything except for the crevasses on the mulberry piece is waxed.

Size 48″ x 13″ x 17″ h   Price is $2500.
