New Fiercely Powerful Metal Animal Sculptures by Seluk Yilmaz

Istanbul-based sculptor Seluk Yilmaz uses thin strands of hammered and welded metal to render animal heads in fearsome, three-dimensional forms. Like his majestic lion sculpture made from 4,000 metal scraps, his recent renderings of tiger, fox, and lynx busts exude a powerful grace that's apparent in each gleaming, curved filament. Yilmaz's tiger sculpture is particularly intimidating–with its teeth bared in a savage snarl as flames flicker across its face. The metal beast is the very picture of ferocity.
