    I wonder how these were made.They look much like fashion store manequins (maybe those molds were used somehow to get the shape).A very original idea to use chains though

    I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

    Very cool! I think I have thrown away or recycled enough chains to create one of those exhibitions. Would be nice to know where to send the sculptor my old chains so they could have a second life.

    I received a bottle-opener constructed of bike-chain (handle) and a segment of chainring (opener) for Christmas one year - it was made by "Resource Revival" in Oregon. I've also seen a purse made of discarded (rubber) tubes and tire-segments stitched together by a friend's girlfriend - she was a punker-chick who wore moon-boots and stuff so it worked out - think Harajuku-girl....

    Very awesome! I am constantly amazed a human genius. How did that guy (?) come about working with old bike chains to make such sculptures? I would love to have one of those.

    this is really kindling my amputee fetish.

    my lbs uses chains as drawer handles. Also a fork for the toilet paper holder.

    Other than on a bike that is the absolute coolest use of a bike chain I have ever seen.

    i've done a few large sculptures, and detail is everything. that dude definitely has the little details down. i wish i had thought of something like that when i was in school, but i stuck mainly to marble and other rocks because nobody else was doing it.
