STEAMPUNK TECHNO SKULL YT7850 YTC SUMMIT This Steampunk Skull is likely to be the most technologically advanced skull you will see for quite some time. Laden with gears, sprockets, and doohickeys, this skull is a prime example of the esoteric yet always intriguing style that is Steampunk. This highly innovative noggin is crafted from heavy cold-cast stone resin, and is hand painted and detailed, ensuring that every nut, bolt, screw, crack, gear and cranny, are given due attention. Several pieces of Steampunk technology have been installed to this lucky fleshless cranium, giving it powers well beyond its lifeless look and appearance. The forehead even features an open porthole, where one can peer and marvel at the workings that now lay within. Clearly a techno-creation built with Steampunk pride and precision. Measures 5.5 inches long and 5 inches wide and it stands 4.5 inches tall.
STEAMPUNK Steampunk art evokes an alternate reality where steam is the primary source of power. Technology, though highly advanced, has taken on a very different look and feel, and fashion is heavily influenced by Victorian styles. In this episode, we explore the Steampunk aesthetic and art movement. We speak with a Steampunk artist, a composer who created an entire piece of music inspired by Steampunk, and a performing arts collective whose work falls naturally into this intriguing world.
Much of the visualizations of Steampunk have their origins with, among others, Walt Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, including the design of the story's submarine the Nautilus, it's interiors, and the film's underwater gear; and George Pal's 1960 film The Time Machine, with the design of the time machine itself.
