Awesome Sculptures Made Out of Old Tires

Awesome Sculptures Made Out of Old Tires

Perfect anatomical details, rawness, wildness and power are the ways to describe these animal sculptures. So well-made you would think they’re alive.

We have seen raw sculptures like these steampunk ones or these steel ones, but this is something new, and even more powerful. They are the work of Korean sculptor Yong Ho Ji who had this childhood memory stuck to his brain, a memory of the spare tire on his family’s Jeep Wrangler.

So he eventually decided to make bad-ass sculptures out of tires. He uses several months to screw and glue together tires into a perfect wild animal. He uses iron, wood planks and potting soil to built a “skeleton” before he puts on the tires which show off every muscle of the beast, and the black color gives it the perfect dark look. From horse and wolf to rhinoceros and wild boar.

The last mentioned look like they belong to a sci-fi movie with their unusual and scary looks. To Ho Ji tires represent the important link between industrialization and environmental degradation. We just think he’s doing an awesome job.
