Recycled Mixed-Media Sculptures That Capture Animals in Action

Mary Engel specializes in bronze and mixed media sculptures. And by mixed media, I mean random junk--you know, little figurines and toys that your grandmother might have sitting out or that your kids beg you for in that cursed impulse-buying section of the grocery store right before you check out.

Anyway, Engel takes her medium and shapes it into sculptures of dogs, cats and horses (I think... I’m not sure. There may have even been a goat in there). “My sculptural goal is to capture an animal’s gesture or movement,” she says. Unique.
