Andrew Chase works with painstaking detail to create his remarkable steampunk sculptures — an impressive collection of animal-inspired artworks made from reclaimed steel sheets, car parts, industrial equipment, and more. Each sculpture takes Chase between 80 and 120 hours to complete, and they can be adjusted into different postions. His cheetah sculpture, seen above, has been sculpted from electrical insulation fittings, parts of a car transmission, and another 20 pieces of steel. Surprisingly, it only weights about 40 pounds!
