I love this!!! Seriously, it is so masterfully crafted, it's breath taking. I love the circles, the gears, just everything!! I just love the juxtaposition of living, breathing organisms with something so mechanical, it's such a wonderful strange concept. I totally agree with your description. Nicely done!
I'm going to root around for some money, because I love this. I want it. It is a beautiful piece of work: love the gear details. Both the natural and man-made are in this, and I like that contrasting quality.
