8×10 Fine Art Print “Steampunk J Cricket”

$15.00

Jiminy Cricket, the steam powered bot is an original handmade one-of-a-kind sculpture, inspired by the 1883 book The Adventures of Pinocchio. Although the 1940 Disney film reimaged Pinocchio and Jiminy as best buds, the original talking cricket was cruelly squashed by the mischievous wooden boy.

“…But we can rebuilt him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world’s first bionic cricket. Jiminy will be that cricket. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, more conscientious.”

Solafar’s 8×10 Bot Prints: cost and dimensional prudence for all your robot needs.

This 8 x 10 inch Giclee print depicts Steampunk J. Cricket, an original sculpture made of wire, clay, watch-parts, paper and wood. He stands resolutely in-the-round on a private stage. [The original sculpture is also currently available for purchase.]

Your print will be…

  • Giclee print on Lustre paper – matte finish w/ slight sheen, enhanced highlight and shadow detail, realistic saturation, archival life of 100+ years
  • Devoid of the “©solafar” watermark – seen across the previewed imagine
  • Emblazoned with the artist’s signature – I’m gunna write my name on it

Cricket Facts

  • Outside temperatures can be determined (in Fahrenheit degrees) by counting the number of chirps produced in 15 seconds, then adding 37.
  • A group of cricket is called an “orchestra”.

Jiminy Facts

  • In the original 1883 book Adventures of Pinocchio (by Carlo Collodi) the “talking cricket” makes his first appearance in chapter 4, after Geppetto is imprisoned for Pinocchio’s mischief. He insists Pinocchio must either attend school or work, whereupon Pinocchio throws a mallet at the cricket, killing him. He returns later in the story as a ghost to advise Pinocchio, but the wooden boy is eventually killed for his misdeeds.
  • In the 1940 Disney film Pinocchio, the “talking cricket” is given the name Jiminy, and becomes a constant companion to a much more endearing wooden boy.
  • Long before Jiminy Cricket was a name for the Disney character, it was said as a minced oath for, “Jesus Christ!”
