Korean artist Kang Dong Hyun creates metal animal-shaped sculptures from delicate metal in the form of tree branches and twigs. Although each piece is man-made, these metallic shrubbery appear to grow organically into the three-dimensional art portray majestic animals such as lions, elephants, rhinoceros and whale. Use lion sculpture as example, its full facial features are brought to life through a network of sculpted twigs, a furrowed brow projecting a look of worry.
