Kinda Reminds Me of the Vitruvian Man...Sorta...

Alex has been working on a pocket watch beetle for himself.

He used a Dorcus sp. Stag Beetle from West Irian Indonesia, and an vintage brass pocket alarm clock. The watch is 2.5 inches in diameter (a pretty good size).

Using various pieces of decorative paper, model paint, rubber stamps and fire he layered and distressed the inside back. On the reverse he applied a cutout from a 1918 postcard.

The sky wasn't being very cooperative for these pictures and there is a bit of glare. Special thanks to Shane and Melinda for the new glass face!
