Mini Strandbeest by Theo Jansen
The Strandbeest Kit is a fully functional, miniature replica of a "Strandbeest", one of Theo Jansen's evolving kinetic sculptures! Assemble your own Strandbeest in about 90 minutes, and release it into the wild. This model is made of plastic, includes illustrated and written instructions, and requires no special tools. Suggested for ages 8 and up. Assembled dimensions are: height (back of the beest): 11cm (4.3"), Height (top of propeller): 17cm (6.7"), Width: 13cm (5.1"), Length: 20cm (7.9").
Physicist-turned-artist Jansen has been creating 'Strandbeests' since 1990. Superlatively designed and intricately assembled, Jansen’s self-propelled creatures have evolved over the years, becoming increasingly complex and lifelike, with specialized adaptations to help them survive in their seaside environment.
