Aslan, A Massive Lion Sculpture Handmade from 4,000 Metal Scraps

Aslan

Istanbul-based artist Selçuk Yilmaz has created a majestic sculpture called “Aslan” — the Turkish word for lion — made from nearly 4,000 pieces of metal. According to Colossal, each piece of metal in the 550-pound sculpture was individually hand-cut and hammered, and the whole piece took nearly a year to complete.
