Steampunk ART (Wikipedia) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steampunk#Art_and_design
Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. Steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era or American “Wild West” and incorporate mechanical parts and fantasy alongside old futuristic and Victorian elements like hot air balloons, light bulbs, wings and pipes.
Technique: STEAMPUNK ART
Materials: this unique piece of art was created from various scrap metal items welded together to create a usable piece of art: the important thing about steampunk projects is not necessarily the material of the items you add but their style and look. For example use cogwheels made of chipboard is better than using hearts made of metal because cogwheels are consistent with the steampunk style and hearts not so much. Steampunk is all about mechanical, industrial and grunge that means lots of cogwheels, screws, clock parts, mechanical parts etc.
Having said that metal parts are a key ingredient in any steampunk project for these reasons:
UNIQUE: there are some items that you can only get in metal for example clock parts or hinges.
TEXTURE: metal parts, especially found items, have sometimes a texture of rust and grunge you can only find on metal and that’s the base of steampunk!
SHAPE: some 3D parts like pipes, screws and mechanical parts are only made from metal.
COLOR: metal has a distinct color of copper, gold or silver that you need for a steampunk project.
Size: 15,7″ x 15,7″ inches – 40 x 40 cm
PS: Would be great for displaying as interior decor (at home, in the office). Perfect gift for that special someone whose hard to shop for.
