Taxidermy Gone Awry: A Real Steampunk Turtle

So, yes, that is an actual turtle that has undergone taxidermy and has had its turtle guts scooped out to make way for a bunch of gears and other steampunky-type things. Or, you know… mostly gears.

Steampunk Turtle

To those of you freaked out that artist Lisa Black would create this steampunk turtle “sculpture” with organic parts: I have it on good authority that the turtle led a full, happy life of eating grass and taking forever to get anywhere.

Plus, c’mon… it’s just a turtle, people. It’s not like Lisa made steampunk sculptures out of a duckling or a fawn or anything.

AHEM.

P.S. Baby crocodile.

    I can’t decide if these are super cool or super creepy. Maybe both.

    That fawn is AMAZING! Totally want it, although it would greatly clash with everything else I own…

    Cool. But let’s not imbue our animalian minions with too much power here…Can no one else foresee steam-punk armies rising up to retaliate for the countless millennia of human gorging, labor exploitation and sheep-f**king?

    RoboTurtle Lives! My onl question would be where are the gun mounts? ;)

    It’s not steampunk but it’s kind of the same idea: Have you seen the taxidermy beaver computer?
