Mechanic Nativity

This is a series of small sculptures I did only by using pieces I already had, all from the same old box we have at home. It was like having a restricted source/parameter, and working out a solution with it. The limitation turned into a tricky puzzle, very surprising -even for me- at the end.
I started by making a creature with the appearance of a small robot. Then, I had some other robot faces, and I had to make them a body. I didn’t want to use any glue or sticking material, so I looked for pieces that could be assembled mechanically. Other anthropomorphic forms appeared, little by little, and then I realized it all had a look like the nativity. I completed the scene with the ox and the small three kings.
