    I've seen these pieces before. Mind-boggling in their intricacy, complexity, craftsmanship & beauty. The guy only lived 64 years. I couldn't build one of his pieces in 64 years. :rolleyes:

    Never mind the engineering aspect, I wonder how much money it would take to duplicate the thing as I bet that would be mind boggling alone.

    Impressive.
