Mantis Hybrid

This piece is the result of a study of different creatures in nature, from insects to mamals, hybrided together to create the ultimate predator.
I was very interested in the hard and soft elements of animals, and how to put them together cohesively. It began as a clay sculpt, which was then plaster waste moulded, resin casted and finished with waterbased acryllics, and spray paint.
The head was sculpted entirely seperate, and silicone molded and then cast in resin.

Dimensions: 2.2m x 2m x 1.70m
