Artist Recycles Old Hubcaps Into Stunning Animal Sculptures

Those car enthusiasts out there are always looking for a way to integrate their love of everything automobile related into art, so for those who have been wracking their brains trying to figure out a way to put more car-themed decorations into their home, there is the art of forming lost hubcaps into gorgeous, sleek statues that can depict various animals.  The artist in charge of this new and exciting artwork is Ptolemy Elrington, and he’s making himself into a household name already.

Throughout the past twelve years of his life, Elrington has dedicated himself to creating these sculptures, and it’s easy to see how he’s perfected the craft and is now able to make flawless designs of various animals that will make themselves at home in any car-lover’s home.  One of the best characteristics is that majority of his pieces feature the brand of the hubcap in the art, assuming that it is salvageable, and he places it in a prominent place that will make you whoop with joy when you see it.  For example, in his creation of an owl, two BMW symbols (found in the middle of the hubcap) are used as eyes, so not only does the owl look realistic with its round, blue eyes, but the posh labels will show anyone who looks at it in your house that you have style.

These incredible statues go for varying prices, the largest ones being a significant amount of money.  But, it’s like any other piece of art, you have you pay for the quality and originality of the works, and for those who love art – especially art as unique as that of Ptolemy Elrington – the price is not a strong deterrent.  Just think, too, this art is so complex that it’ll make an statement to everyone who sees it, and it can even double as a conversation starter if you work hard enough!

Whatever your reason, this is a great idea for car enthusiasts around the world.
