Art has been static for so long that any movement in it takes us by surprise. This is why mechanical sculptures are so special!
These realistic pieces of art do not rely on movement for their beauty, but the movement surely enhances the experience. The mechanical in Mechanical Art signifies mechanics, motion; and the Art signifies the art – the realism of the work.
See how beautiful this mechanical horse sculpture is?
Or the… um… Creepy mechanical mouths.
And this. A walking family!
