The artist imagined what Leonardo DaVinci would create if had he had access to the internal combustion engine and described this work as "a fantasy machine from the past, a huge tractor-like machine to challenge and stimulate the imaginations of children of all ages."
This sculpture weighs one ton and combines primitive ox-cart and wagon technology with the brute horsepower of today's technology. The engine parts are arranged to represent a 12-cylinder engine of approximately 1700 cubic inches. It has double overhead cam shafts and a total of 48 valves. A wide steel chain drives the two camshafts, and another chain transfers power form the crankshaft to a truck ring gear and pinion located in a large rear-mounted steel drum.
