Artist Ron Pippin creates sculptures of animals with mechanical augmentations, such as the above work entitled "Solar Deer". In an interview, Pippin said:
My work is often related to ideas about the relationship of Science, Art, and Nature. My scientific aesthetic is primarily drawn from the 19th Century, when, I feel, science still had a relationship to beautiful forms.
Content warning: Pippin uses actual animal parts in many of his works.
