The Artist Turns Useless Hubcaps Into Impressive Looking Sculptures

art-hubcap-creatures-07

Most of us get bored when we see old hubcaps jumbling the roadside, but artist Ptolemy Elrington has spent 12 years setting them for the good use. Elrington takes dismissed hubcaps and repurposes them into wonderful animal sculptures. The impressive thing is that he doesn’t try to hide the fact these sculptures made from hubcaps. It’s astonishing to think that these beautiful animal sculptures, which can obtain up to £10,000 (approximately $15,500) a piece, were once rejected bits of trash!
