Praying Mantis - Metal Earth

$16.00

The Metal Earth and ICONX line of miniatures are purchased as laser-cut sheets of stainless steel. The pieces pop out and clip together - no glue is necessary - to create fantastically detailed little models.

Cut from a 11cm square thin sheet of metal, you need to pop out the pieces to construct this model Praying Mantis.

The name comes from the Greek word meaning prophet because they appear to be praying when their forelegs are clasped together. They are carnivorous and are equipped with sharp spines along their front legs to grasp prey. The mantis is a very unique insect in that it can turn its head 180 degrees, has only one ear and some are large enough to capture humming birds.

Number Of Sheets: 1 Sheet
