Unbelievable Lion Sculpture Made from Hammered Steel by Selcuk Yilmaz

Turkish artist Selcuk Yilmaz created this unbelievable lion sculpture from 4,000 pieces of hammered metal. Entitled Aslan, the sculpture took the artist 10 months to complete and weighs approximately 250 kg (551 pounds). The sculpture measures 330 cm long by 185 cm tall (10.8 ft x 6.06 ft)

Every piece of metal used was hand cut and hammered by the artist. The detail in the close-up images below really demonstrate how incredible this sculpture is.

  1. Hi, dear Vanina!

    I have seen your comment below, but I didn’t have a time to answer. The Time… Why we have 24 hours in a day and not more? Many thanks for the tons of likes you leave on my page! You don’t imagine, how it inspired!

    According your Fb I thought that you was born in Saint-Petersburg. Nope? Thats OK! Thanks for a gentle and smart look on Russian people despite of all that terrible political jazz. A lot of our people is actually zealous, kind and nice. I hope and I try to believe this. Yes, we have many intellectual artists and I’ll try to find out more about this and necessarily let you know about actually interesting!

    It’s a pleasure to checking out your blog and getting the set of marvels, esthetic feelings, find out the latest news. Are you really know Estas Tonnie? First time I had listened his guitar on you website! Separately thanks for that!

    Have a nice weekend and take care!
    See you soon!

      Dear Vadim
      Hello, well awake? You are in good shape, you, I hope!
      I think I’m starting to enjoy these exchanges! I will have trouble without it.
      Thank you for your compliments.
      I can not explain it to you, but there is no week nor weekend for me! It’s nice to wish it.
      And I forgot to give you the courtesy!
      So much, I’m in the moment!
      You are so different from others.
      Benevolence and good curiosity, joy in a strand of melancholy.
      A lot of restraint and yet a fire that burns in your temperament!

      Yes, I too am happy to see you back on your gravatar; as your words make me happy!
      I will answer your questions and something to say about the text “the rigth path” etc
      I have a few questions to ask you if it’s not too indiscreet?
      I’m still there for 3 hours ..
      and you go to work?
      Time does not seem it seems?
      But everything depends on who we are working with and with whom? haha

Artists deserve respect. Even if it bothers you and you don't like their work; refrain from negative opinions, non-constructive remarks. Opt for an objective analysis of the work as well as a good understanding of the author's intentions..Thx
