One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. For Portuguese street artist, Bordalo II, he’s actually turning common street trash into incredible sculptures depicting wild animals.

He travels all over the world collecting materials from junk yards, factories and finding  inspiration out of what others toss out like car bumpers, tires, door panels to create these beautiful structures – that are bizarrely life-like.
