The Typewriter Robot Delilah

No, it’s not a typewriting robot, it’s an artistic sculpture made by Jeremy Mayer, out of 50 different typewriter parts. Inspired by friend Brent Clifford’s paintings of female robots, Mayer decided to take some vintage typewriters apart and reassemble its parts as a IV aka Delilah. The name comes both from the story of Samson and Delilah and from the women who posed for the artwork, Delilah Brown. The typewriter robot took Jeremy Mayer 1,400 hours to make, during the past year and it’s now on display at various museums, including Ripley’s Believe It or Not and Nevada Museum of Art, in Reno. Delilah can be yours for the modest price of $20,000. Come on guys, it’s art and it’s cool!

Since the MODEL is the only person used to model the art-form,then you used a WOMAN-SINGULAR not WOMEN-PLURAL.
