Incredibly Majestic Lion Made of 4,000 Metal Scraps


Istanbul-based Turkish sculptor Seluk Yilmaz has constructed a 6-foot-tall, 10-foot-long majestic lion out of nearly 4,000 pieces of scrap metal that is aptly dubbed Aslan (Lion). Taking close to a year to complete the incredible sculpture, the artist hand-cut and hammered each metallic component into shape until they worked in unison to form the proud king of the jungle.

More than your average animal sculpture, Yilmaz’s 550-pound figure presents a labor-intensive assemblage of countless materials that simulate everything from the sharp tooth of a lion to its full mane. The textured piece is like a creature from a fairy tale–one where the tin man and cowardly lion merged into one form and walked amongst men.
