Stag beetles fighting – Steps

jade beetle

I made this piece as an entry for a competition. I think it was my first sculptural piece. There were so many parts and different materials to put together in a strong balanced way. It was challenging and satisfying. I still really enjoy looking at this piece. I love beetles and other creatures with exoskeletons. This sculpt was purely made to my tastes πŸ™‚
