Istanbul-based artist Selçuk Yılmaz created this incredibly awesome lion sculpture using nearly 4,000 pieces of scrap metal. He spent almost a year working on this piece, which required hand-cutting and hammering each of those 4,000 pieces of metal.
Yılmaz named his sculpture Aslan, which is the Turkish word for Lion, and immediately makes us think of “the great Lion” Aslan from The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. The big, shiny cat weighs about 550 pounds (250 kg) and makes us want to travel to Narnia.
Check out more of Selçuk’s artwork via Behance.
Head over to Colossal for more photos of this magnificent metal king of beasts.

"If shadows could talk
they would tell us
everything we know already
but in the melodious
language of tears
in which every third word rhymes."

"We tell each other stories to help each other live. That’s why I read poetry. I read poetry to stay alive. That’s why I went to poetry in the first place, that’s why I stay with it, that’s why I’ll never leave it."

"Stories are the creative conversion of life itself into a more powerful, clearer, more meaningful experience. They are the currency of human contact."

Stop setting yourself
on fire for someone who
stays to watch you burn.
