Scrap Metal Animal Sculptures


French artist Edouard Martinet creates stunning sculptures of insects, reptiles, fishes and birds from pieces of scrap metal and rubbish collected from flea markets and car boot sales. Martinet doesn’t weld the metals together, choosing instead to use small screws, and spends about a month on each sculpture, often working on two or three pieces at the same time. Some pieces can take years; the most recent one took him seventeen years while he was searching for the one final perfect component.
