A client from France offered me the challenge of creating an "alien mechanical sculpture". 
My goal was to create something unconventional, that no one has ever seen before.

Created using the two-stage process... Animations and special movements include opening mouth, side to side/self centering eyes, blinkers, winker, upper section of head opens wide, special backing in mouth, raising and lowering arm, LED light in fingertip, swollen and cracked toenail.

Gort was one of the rare BIGHEADS that didn't come out as well as most "freestyle" creations. Personally I believe the concept got away from me a little. While entertaining to look at from a unique point of view, it was somewhat heavy and difficult to operate.
