If I were handed 4,000 metal scraps and told to make something, anything, out of it, I would probably just end up hurting myself. Luckily, Istanbul-based artist Selçuk Yılmaz is much more artistically gifted than I am. He recently sculpted a metal lion named Aslan, which is Turkish for Lion, by cutting and hammering each individual piece. The project took him a year to finish but the end result is just breathtaking.
