Insects and Animals Made from Repurposed Objects by Edouard Martinet

Art exists because life is not enough.

It’s hard to believe that these perfectly assembled sculptures by French artist Edouard Martinet ever existed in any other form than they appear now. Yet every head, thorax, leg, wing, and eye from these assorted creatures was once part of a car, bicycle, typewriter, or other found objects. Reading through his material lists it becomes clear how completely thorough and judicious Martinet is in selecting the perfect objects to realize his vision, truly a master of his craft. You can see several additional new works on his website.
