I’ve seen some amazing metal works in the past but this one stands out. I can’t believe the details that went into this thing.

Created over a period of 10 months, Turkish artist Selçuk Yılmaz used more than 4,000 pieces of metal scraps to create this magnificent sculpture called ‘Aslan’ (means Lion in Turkish).

Yılmaz 4,000 pieces of thin strand metal which is hammered, formed and welded together to create this single lion. The The final work measures 330 cm long by 185 cm tall (10.8 ft x 6.06 ft) and weighs roughly 250 Kgs.

“It needs patience and we have to know pain,” said the artist on DeviantArt.

Seriously, I can’t imagine the amount of time, effort, skill and resources he must have spent to create this masterpiece.
