Old Farm Equipment and Scrap Metal Turned into STUNNING Sculptures
Absolutely beautiful sculptures.


South Dakotan 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.

Yes, but can that crap be sold for more than the value of scrap and the time/supplies spent welding it up?

Scrapping leads to a quicker dollar.

If he put them up in my home town someone would break them down and sell them for scrap by nightfall.

Of course it can. Look at the in-depth work that talented man put into it. It's stunning art.

I love creative people. The beauty inspires me and makes me happy to see it.

This sculpturer is brilliant and should be paid wonderfully for his wonderful imagination he literally brought to life.

Did someone hire their old looney aunt because they felt sorry for her?

I took another look in case I was being too harsh in my criticism.

On second look it looks like what I would create by balling up some aluminum foil.

Lol.
