How to create a lion sculpture from a 2-by-4
It’s a tricky task.
But a lion’s claws can be sculpted from 2-D objects, and even that takes a bit of creativity.
A sculpture called “Lion’s Claw” is based on a piece of art by Japanese artist Junji Yasui.
The artist said the piece is a response to a popular 3-D sculpture called the “LION’S CLAW” in Tokyo.
Yasui created a replica of the lion’s claw with two 3-dimensional pieces of glass.
The pieces look like little paws, but they are actually a pair of claws.
You can see them on the 3-d model at the end of this post.
Yasuis design is a bit quirky, so you might want to play around with the 3D models yourself.
Here’s a closer look at the claws.
The art is not perfect.
The design is not the most accurate.
But it works.
