Intricate Movie Icon Sculptures Made From Recycled Steel
August 19th, 2009
These amazing pop culture art works feature familiar movie and TV characters hand-sculpted from reclaimed metal.
The guys over at Art From Steel create over 450 different creatures out of recycled steel, ranging from Wall-E to the Terminator to Gundam and everyone in between. While the small sculptures might be assembled from just a few parts, some of the larger ones are built from over 2,000 components and take up to 12 craftsmen and 30 days to build. Check out the image gallery below to see some of my favorites. I love that Edward Scissorhands!
Sculptures range in price from as little as $46 bucks for a mini Wall-E, all the way up to $4000 bucks for an insanely detailed Alien. You can find the entire metal menagerie over on the Art From Steel website.
Don’t see your favorite character? That’s okay, they’re happy to do custom commissions. Me? I’m looking for a giant steel Q-Bert and Dig Dug for my front lawn.
