Incredible #Art Beauty from Old Farm Equipment and Scrap Metal

Old Farm Equipment And Scrap Metal Turned Into Stunning Sculpture...

See lots more below. 
This guy is amazing!!!!!
South Dakota sculptor John Lopez creates life-sized scrap  metal sculptures with
a uniquely Western American twist.  In his hands, old discarded farm equipment is
recycled into sculptures of iconic creatures from the American West like a bison, a
horse plowing a field, or a Texas Longhorn.  Lopez already had a career as a bronze
sculptor, but after creating a family grave for his deceased aunt using scrap metal,
he began creating recycled metal sculptures out of found or donated pieces of metal
as well.

"My favorite part about these pieces is the texture," explains Lopez. "I just
start grabbin' stuff from the pile and welding it in, and if you weld enough of the same
thing on over and over it creates this really cool texture that I've never seen in these
kinds of pieces before.  I think that's what draws people in.
