The Sculptures of Stephane Halleux

MetaFilter describes the work of Belgian sculptor St├ęphane Halleux as "Tim Burton meets Jules Verne."

Once upon a late evening, while cleaning my workroom, I realised how useful an assistant would be. Someone I could entrust with all the little tasks that were slowing down my work. From an old spin-dryer and an old German typewriter (cleanness, discipline) I created this robot. Pliers as a left hand; blowlamp, cutting disk, drill .... grafted onto the right hand. This new companion quickly showed himself extremely gifted.
