Seems to be quite a bit of art by recycling these days.
Two good examples, thanks for sharing Doc.

Thanks. You're right about the recycling process. :wink:

While the first is as crude and corroded as it could get the second has very intricate and elaborated details. The bull's physiology is definitely nicely translated through mechanical parts...

Ceated by Armenian artists, Doc?
I read and saw in The New York Times that the new cascaded museum that opened its gates and gardens a few weeks ago in the heart of Yerevan. An interesting structure... Yerevan is earning a new art-hub title it seems and that's great news for everyone!

Hi Doc - the bull is great, a very clever sculpture and I like the photo it in B&W. It is a very dramatic pose.
Nex 5, Nex 6 (IR), A7M2, A99 and a bunch of lenses.

I happen to know the guy who created them. A very very modest and humble person.
And yes, you're right, Yildiz, we are seeing a kind of rise in art here. In the summer we had open air concerts (mainly classic music) all over and almost every day (I love classical music).

And thanks to all, but do post your shots too (of statues). 8)

The artist has certainly captured the vibrancy of form, really quite lifelike for all its metal components. Having had more than one bull tossing its head at me as I ran, looking over my shoulder, I can testify to the accuracy of its appearance. One can almost imagine it is driven by steam.
