The French artist created his jolly running ostrich by securing the assorted metal parts with a few screws and opted not to use a welding iron. His pigeon and a very cute robin sculpture appear to share some gossip before taking a flight. A shrimp made from metal spoons and other recycled kitchen elements has plenty of antennas made from – you guessed it – radio antennas.

A rusty blue fish is another of Martinets meticulously crafted sea creatures. And his cute baby wasp seems to be pleasantly sleeping. Sustainable, detailed, hand-made and yet sturdy, Martinets recycled metal animals will hopefully never see extinction.
