I love Steampunk; its crazy blend of history and science fiction. I love seeing the contraptions and creativity of other Steampunk enthusiasts. I also love dabbling in some Steampunk of my own. It’s not a very large Steampunk sculpture, but it is one of my favorites. This is “Arachnida Typographicus” the Steampunk spider.

Arachnida Typographicus (Steampunk spider sculpture) - Laura Hepworth

This Steampunk spider sculpture, as I said, is not very large, having a leg-span of only 7 inches. The carapace (main body) of the spider is made from an old watch, while the legs are keys from an old typewriter (hence the name “Arachnida Typographicus”), the abdomen was just a clear plastic bead I had lying around (it actually came from one of the first bags of beads I was ever given when I was 6), and all the parts are held together wire. Sorry, unlike some other Steampunk spider sculptures I’ve seen, my one is simply a sculpture and is not mechanized.
