Amazing wildlife sculptures created from recycled metal

During National Insect Week this summer, I came across this wonderful sculpture of dung beetles pushing a ball of dung created by Made by a Prince from recycled metal objects including spoons. After a chat on Twitter, the prince in question kindly agreed to let me share these photos of his animal, bird and insect creations with you such as a dragonflies, a woodpecker, a very cute mouse in a nest and some little owls. Alan Prince, the man behind these sculptures, says:

I get most of my inspiration from the nature in the countryside, in north Devon where I live with my wife and Jess, the Jack Russell. Most of my work is ‘upcycled' using cutlery, copper tanks, plumbing fittings etc… Even old coins, made into money spiders!

‘Lobster on Rock' has been donated to an Art4Macmillan charity auction in October and other works can be seen at a pop-up art gallery @devonartpop at Kelly House on 6th and 7th September 2014.
I think they would make someone a lovely gift for the house or garden and Alan also does commissions.
