Aslan – Sculpture
Selçuk Yılmaz is a talented artist belong to Istanbul.
He managed to transform thousands pieces of metal into a majestic lion sculpture, named: Aslan (Turkish for Lion).
The artwork took nearly a year of work and involved hand-cutting and hammering of each individual metal piece.
The final work weighs roughly 550 pounds (250kg) and is comprised of 4,000 pieces of metal.
Every single piece of metal was cut and broken up by hand to get the preferred result.
Yılmaz worked determinedly to make sure that each piece of the lion expressed its spirit of power.
Although he isn’t clearly made from skin and fur, yet it looks horrifyingly Genuine.
