Laser-cut steel sculptures of industrial machines are regal and awesome


Belgian artist Wim Delvoye's gothic construction vehicle sculptures show what a world after the industrial revolution could have looked like if it was shaped by the same minds that put gargoyles atop imposing spires and buttresses in European architecture. It's very gothicpunk, the regal, brooding forerunner to steampunk. He makes the giant art pieces out of laser cut steel, which is how he manages to get all of those cool, precise little details.

Check out the gallery below for more of Wim Delvoye's intricate catepillars, dump trucks and concrete mixers. He's also got an impressive website featuring a pixelated town that's toured by a little white bus.
