Maurice Montero Sauvage is a quiet builder of complex art. His sculptures feature miniscule hand-worked wooden pieces that suddenly shift into organic movement with the turn of a crank. This piece, titled Gran Cheval, has popped up around the internet with little or no attribution, and few detail shots, which is frustrating bordering on offensive when the construction is so painstaking and nuanced.
Maurice himself is slightly hard to track down online, which seems fitting for someone this dedicated to skilled handcrafts. However, more takes of this cool sculpture turned up. Check out these closer up views of his Cheval series. They even make realistic hoofbeats!
