Madcow Cosmos: Day 4

BUGS!

Madcow Day 4

“14 Days, 14 Sculptures” takes an insect-like turn today as Madcow Cosmos rezzed 4 giant insects at Oyster Bay! With a giant “Manti-Dragon” (only 267 prims) and a massive “Riding Spider” (230 prims) hanging overhead, the smaller insect bot (437 prims) and mantis (163 prims) that sit in the upper gallery must feel safe. Again, incredible work with a stunning attention to detail. Come see for yourself!

[UPDATE] Here’s Madcow’s interpretation of the pieces:

Not so itsy bitsy spiders

The large pieces I have out today share not only the common theme of insects but both have areas on them to sit and gaze out over your domain or do mighty oversized monster battle from.  The reason for this is simple, I want people to play on them.  Though looking and enjoying is nice, I like it when I make things people can play with.  When I sell them they are always modifiable for the same reason.  I’m done with it, its time for someone else to get to play and enjoy it.  Every now and again I like to set them up in sandboxes so it looks like they are fighting.  This helps realize one of my life long dreams of making all men equal by allowing them to do battle attop giant monsters.  (Note to self don’t write these things when I am half awake).

Our exoskeletoned friends are a fun subject to work with in second life.  The building tools lend themselves really well to segmented bodies so they fly together with little hassle or fuss making them a fun project for sleepy minds.  I enjoy the insect world for several reasons.  One is that they are the closest thing to something really allien among life on earth.  The other is that the segmented majority here on earth have their own epic struggles and high speed chases millions of times a day without us ever much noticing.
