Hammered Metal Lion by Selçuk Yılmaz

Istanbul-based Turkish sculptor Selçuk Yılmaz has created a majestic lion sculpture from almost 4,000 pieces of scrap metal, titled Aslan (Turkish for Lion).

The 6-foot-tall, 10-foot-long sculpture took 10 months to complete and weighs roughly 550 pounds (250kg).

The artist hand-cut and hammered every piece of the metallic component by himself.

“It needs patience and we have to know pain.”
