The Wonderful World of Tom Haney

The correct answer for the challenge was Crocodile Dundee -- congrats to all! Now for today, I came across these kinetic sculptures by Tom Haney and wanted to share them with you. They are wonderful pieces and entirely hand crafted; all of the figures are hand carved and sculpted. Not only does he create all the figures himself he makes them move mechanically. I can only imagine the amount of time it takes to create one of these pieces. The level of detail in his work just amazes me and the creativity delights! But to really get the full effect of this artwork you must visit his website and watch them in action, they are incredibly charming!

Hmn...very intriguing. It's like Robert Rauchenburg and Tim Burton had a baby.
