#33. And finally, these amazing metal sculptures by John Lopez
South Dakota-based artist John Lopez creates sculptures that you have probably never seen before. He welds together discarded farming equipment to make unbelievable figures of animals — including buffalo, horses, cows, rams, antelope, bears, and even dinosaurs. The result? Majestic mechanical beasts dressed in full battle gear.
A professional bronze sculptor, Lopez initially fashioned a gate for a family cemetery from bits of scrap metal he found on his uncle’s ranch, which was 35 miles away from town.
After using extra metal to make an angel perched from atop the metal gate, he felt so much satisfaction from his work that he decided to make some more, and make them big.
