Adrian Landon’s Mechanical Horse Stuns


This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in a long time! According to his website, he writes:

Almost two years in the making, the Mechanical Horse was single-handedly designed, machined and sculpted by me, at home and in my metal shop in Brooklyn, NY.  Over 100 bearings, custom laser-cut sprockets, 30 feet of chain, 23 articulating joints and one small electric motor, this has been by far my most challenging project yet, combining my in-depth knowledge and passion for horses, my childhood mechanical experience with Legos, and most of all, my love for creation.

The sculpture will be exhibited at the Kentucky horse park through October 16.
