Next time you drive by a junk yard or trash dump and see those massive piles of old car tires, imagine the beauty lurking inside. Yong Ho Ji of Korea cannot only envision the beauty, he unleashes it. Yong Ho Ji takes old tires, cuts, twists, bends, shapes, and molds them to his demands to create phenomenal animal sculptures. The sculptures are so impressive that at first you do not pay attention to the material. It is only when you focus closer that you realize the material is tires. Yong Ho Ji carefully weaves the tires taking advantage of the tread patterns for additional depth and realism in his creatures.

You probably never dreamed of wanting old tires lying in your yard, at least until you saw the works of Yong Ho Ji. These are old tires you would love to have on display in your yard, or in your home.
