Most Fearsome Beast in Modern Art

Selcuk Yilmaz a sculptor living in Istanbul specializes in sculpting most ferocious animals like lion, tiger, lynx and fox. His work of metal beasts truly displays elegance in every sculpture. Made from thin strands of hammered metal to form fearsome 3D animal shape, his sculpture is the very picture of ferocity.selcukyilmaz5

In his latest work like ‘Majestic Lion’, he uses 4,000 metal scraps simply meant to demonstrate how fearsome such creature can be. That is quite apparent in each shiny curved filament.

And his tiger sculpture can be more intimidating, showing its sharp bare teeth in a savage snarl with flames flickering across its face.
