Project Description

The class project is pretty straightforward : sculpt your own mantis!
You can go crazy and make it as surrealistic or realistic as you want.
Play around with shapes and colors, but at the end, one still needs to see the mantis.

And most importantly : have fun, don't judge, just do.
