Edouard Martinet is a skilled French artist who borrows from his day job to create these intricate metal animal sculptures.  He uses all sorts of recycled objects ranging from bicycle parts to kitchen elements to typewriter keys to make his amazingly detailed metal animal sculptures.

 

The French artist created his jolly running ostrich by securing the assorted metal parts with a few screws and opted not to use a welding iron. Edouard Martinet’s pigeon and a very cute robin sculpture appear to share some gossip before taking a flight. A shrimp made from metal spoons and other recycled kitchen elements has plenty of antennas made from – you guessed it – radio antennas.

 

A rusty blue fish is another metal animal sculpture of Martinets meticulously crafted sea creatures. And his cute baby wasp seems to be pleasantly sleeping. Sustainable, detailed, hand-made and yet sturdy, Martinets recycled metal animals will hopefully never see extinction.
