Artists have many ways of expressing their creativity. This UK-based artist, Ptolemy Elrington, makes an homage to nature by taking old, discarded trash like wires and hubcaps and creating incredible, intricate animal sculptures.

The artist told Bored Panda: "I come from an artistic background and was always encouraged to be creative. I’ve been avoiding a regular job for many years and making a living doing what I love seems to be working out for me."

The artist loves nature and feels very strongly about environmental issues, which plays a big part in the work he creates.
