Daddy Long Legs

Inspired by the spindly spiders, Ben Roth created a 13-foot-tall free-standing Daddy long legs. Its body is made out of stainless steel washers Roth soldered together, and the lithe legs, which span some 30 feet, are mild steel. The arachnid has become an attraction for kids and adults alike.
