Mighty Midland Mantis

May 22nd, 2013

 

Completed a 5 ½ foot tall praying mantis sculpture for the 2013 Summer Sculpture Series Downtown Midland.

 

The big guy will be delivered this week and all things considered it was a very fun project.

 

The “Mighty Midland Mantis” was constructed from ½ inch pieces of plywood that were designed to fit together using minimum hardware.

 

The project was very much like assembling a large wood puzzle.

 

The sculpture will be displayed in the downtown are of the city during June, July, August and September.
