    Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to print it out and make out with it like you do all those Jennifer Lawrence pictures you find online. This is a pictorial of the process that New York sculptor Randall Rosenthal uses to carve a box of money out of a block of wood. W... / Continue →

    This is David McCracken's 'Diminish and Ascend', a giant aluminum sculpture that looks like a stairway to heaven. It doesn't actually lead to the pearly gates though, it's just an optical illusion. It's really only 30-feet long and 15-feet high and is perched atop a hill at B... / Continue →

    This is the lion sculpture made entirely out of old shredded tires spotted (or possibly just stolen somewhere else off the internet) by Redditor m1keyth. I think it's somewhere in the UK, but it could be in the park by my apartment but I wouldn't know because I never leave. I... / Continue →

    This is the 12-foot mech sculpture built over the course of a month out of parts from an old Nissan and other scrap metal. With this guy standing guard in front of your house, you definitely won't have to worry about the neighborhood kids trying to toilet paper your yard. You... / Continue →

    These are two animal skulls with little clay Super Mario levels recreated on top by artist Tobias Wüstefeld for the We Love 8-Bit art show in Vienna, Austria. Why animal skulls? NO F***ING CLUE. It's art though, so it doesn't have to make sense. Personally, I think the scen... / Continue →

    These are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sculptures made entirely out of colored twist-ties by DeviantARTist justjake54. Leonardo and Raphael and Michelangelo are all looking in top shape, but Donatello, I'm not sure what happened to him. Plus I thought he was holding a pre... / Continue →

    Some German pranksters in Aachen built a snow car overnight in a no parking zone and traffic wardens came and gave the car a ticket the next morning. But when police found out it was all snow and there was no car underneath -- boy were their faces red. Get it? Because it was... / Continue →

    This is an Ice King snow sculpture from Adventure Time. He looks sad. Like he just wants to find a princess but can't. Poor Ice King, settle for a giant snow penis? Thanks to ChaosLex, who loves chaos so much he goes around kicking the heads off snowmen and replacing them... / Continue →

    This is a series of animal sculptures created by Polish artist Marta Klonowska using pieces of shattered glass. I bet her hands look like she ran them through a paper shredder. Almost all of her sculptures are based on animals found in baroque and romantic paintings by such... / Continue →

    This is a video of artist Li Hongbo demonstrating how one of his paper sculptures works. I'm not really sure how he made that. Did he just carve one giant block of paper that was already folded to expand like an accordion? No clue -- and it's none of our business anyways. T... / Continue →

    This is a video of a sculpture created by artist Jonty Hurwitz that looks like a giant mess when seen regularly but appears as a realistic hand when viewed in a cylindrical mirror. It really opened my eyes to all new possibilities in secret code development. Take the message ... / Continue →

    In what possibly might be the best ice sculpture to have at a wedding ever, this is a full size Toyota Landcruiser carved out of a block of ice. It even has an open door so you can sit in it and make the steering wheel look even more like it was molded out of shit because peop... / Continue →

    What if I told you if you give me a kiss I'll turn into a prince? There is art, then there is art created from frozen cow shit. This is the latter. Siberian Mikhail Bopposov sculpted this serpent out of the dung dropped by his 17 cattle to celebrate the coming Year of the S... / Continue →

    This is a realer-than-real sculpture of Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) from 'Aliens'. It was sculpted (cast) by Steve Scotts out of silicone and a big box of SICK TALENT. I actually had to go back and look at all the in-process shots to make sure it was real. AND IT IS. T... / Continue →

    Seen here sporting the hair braids he got during spring break, He-Man prepares to battle Skeletor's forces with nothing but a sword and brute sexuality. The 1:4 scale sculpture was built from scratch by DeviantARTist EdgePang (aka EJ Pang) and is fairly accurate representation... / Continue →

    This is a giant 'Roxy the Rancor' sculpture carved for the upcoming Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida. I think it's supposed to be life-size. Personally, I think it seems a little small, but what do I know? SPOILER: That my my penis would look like a sewing needle in... / Continue →

    This is a series of sculptures from artist Sayaka Ganz of different animals created entirely from discarded plastic goods. Now look under my coffee table. That's a booger collection. She wants to "transmit a message of hope" through her sculptures; and does so by giving new-... / Continue →

    This is a dragon sculpture created from 136 shattered blank CD's by Redditor Amon-a-boat. He started with a wire mesh frame, then hot-glued all the CD bits onto it. 136 discs? Damn, you could of made a lot of mix CD's with those, homey. Know what I'm saying? I'm saying if ... / Continue →

    This is a mounted zombie head hunting trophy from artist Andrew Martin of Monster Caesar Studios. As you can see, it's pretty life-like. Or, should I say, undead-like. "You shouldn't say anything." I...should probably just stop talking. The trophy is available for $400 and... / Continue →
