Majestic Lion Sculpture Made Of 4,000 Pieces Of Hammered Scrap Metal by Selçuk Yılmaz

Turkish artist Selçuk Yılmaz has created an exceptional lion sculpture from almost 4,000 pieces of scrap metal. Titled Aslan (Turkish for Lion), the sculpture took 10 months to complete and weighs roughly 550 pounds (250kg). Selçuk hand-cut and hammered every piece by himself, and metal-work is not easy. “It needs  patience and we have to know pain,” said the artist on DeviantArt.
