Bicycle Chain Dog Sculptures

Nirit Levav

With scavenged bicycle chains, gears and other parts, Israeli artist Nirit Levav creates sculptures of shaggy dogs. From a distance, they're impressively realistic.

You find and post some cool stuff, John.

At first glance, this sculpture reminded me of my shih-tzu, Cinnamon because of the body shape and proportions. But then, I thought of two other breeds, both from Hungary, the Puli and the Komondor. Both are traditionally working dogs specializing in herding, guarding and other duties.

Anyway...both breeds have hair (not fur) that grows long and naturally develops into plaits, specifically, the type of plait we call dreadlocks.

Wow...uncanny...I just looked at a picture of the Hungarian dogs beside the Tin-Dog. Maybe someone could forward this to the Doctor Who peeps and make this design the inspiration for some sort of, I dunno, K-9 apprentice, or something?
