Michihiro Matsuoka is the artist behind these pieces. He creates these dieselpunk sculptures by fusing various parts to create mechanical organisms (although some of the rustic metallic parts are actually just clay). Personally, I think these vernian hybrids provide viewers with a way of thinking by seeing an unfamiliar object imposed with recognizable features, creating a connection.
This fusion of the mechanical and organic may help viewers understand how certain movements in various animals and technologies works. Aside from that, Michihiro Matsuoka's works are simply adorable and extremely fascinating. These works of art could easily double as interior pieces for a child's room or for the young at heart.
