The body of the mantis is composed of an old snowplow and other pieces of scrap steel, with the rear of the body a cylindrical tank. It has eight legs, the two rear legs made of strips of plate metal and the other legs made of pipes. The neck and head are made of scrap parts, with a pitchfork on top of its head. The smaller insect has a scrap metal body, two large round eyes, and four wings made of automobile fan blades. The mantis is painted green, with black eyes. The smaller insect has a black body, and wings with pink and black patterns. The sculpture is set directly on the ground.
