Steampunk Locomotive – BBQ Grill
This practical work of art was created by a group of metal workers from the village of Deulina, near the city of Ryazan, in Russia, who specialize in interior, exterior and landscape design. The one-of-a-kind Steampunk grill was apparently forged from scrap automobile, motorcycle and train parts, and is currently installed on a private property where very few have the privilege to see it in person. Luckily for the rest of us, the builders took a set of photos for a Moscow exhibition-competition, since their locomotive was too heavy to transport. The grill was apparently built in 2009, but the pics only recently surfaced on a series of Western sites and forums. The little information available on the Steampunk locomotive grill is in Russian, and although Google Translate does a decent job of revealing the essential, there are few paragraphs that dont make much sense. Here is what I was able to make out: the locomotive has three work bays two 60-cm-long grilling pits in the main body and a trailer that acts as a stove. The first compartment is designed for barbecuing kebabs and can accommodate up to twenty skewers, while the second one is equipped with a rotating spit for roasting chicken and large pieces of meat. Some of the locomotive parts are actually functional, like the large brass wheel in the cabin that rotates the spit.
An awesome looking Dragon, made from upcycled parts
This enormous dragon sculpture by Kreatworks is available for sale on Etsy. It’s definitely not for the average consumer as it stands almost 11-feet-tall and is selling at over $10,000. But, if you have a massive cathedral ceiling and enough dough to spend, it would certainly make an epic addition to the house.
Despite the massive scale of this dragon sculpture, no intricacy is spared. The creature contains amazing steampunk-inspired detail that represents an accurate portrayal of a dragon anatomy — not that there is an official biological diagram of this fictional beast.
Kreatworks has a few other pieces available on his Etsy account such as a steampunk Alien and Predator. This dragon takes the cake for scale and price tag, however.
