STEAMPUNK SKULL BOX PT8649 This Steampunk Skull Box 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 skull cap is removable revealing a large open cavity perfect for storing your secret goodies. Clearly a techno-creation built with typical Steampunk pride, ingenuity and precision. Measures 7.5 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.
