I’m referring to the beautiful 1920s robot-girl Maria, from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis — but actually the sculpture pictured is artist Brotron‘s vision of “The Rise of Discord”, snip:
A mechanical representation of Eris, the Greek goddess of strife and discord. Constructed from a framework of steel rods around a functioning mechanical skeleton. Skinned with hammer formed steel panels that are welded for a riveted look and coated with an exterior marine varnish.
Don’t miss the amazing gallery, chock full of polished vintage-looking death-ray guns and “hydraulic robo-slabs” for making your Maria come to life; link via Make.
