The New Breed consists of ten sculptures, created over a period of approximately four years from 1992 to 1996. The New Breed are quadrupeds which appear to be hybrid deer, horses, and even dinosaurs. The sculptures are essentially simple forms. They all have torsos made from industrial springs, and legs, necks, and heads made of metal strips; some have other metal objects attached to create tails, eyes, and faces. To construct these works, Lucas chose to use spot welding rather than weaving. This allowed him to exploit the curvature and flexibility of the metal strips, and through those curves, to give the New Breed a greater sense of organic form and motion.
