You may think the bottle of wine is done when finishing the last drop, but Ciro Califano, a 61-year-old man from the Italian city of Nocera may make you think otherwise.

The artist has turned 10,000 used wine corks into one of the most beautiful, resourceful models ever seen. Circo Califano is a former postal worker who has spent most of his time traveling between Milan and Naples, and has always had a dream of using his artistic abilities. The 10,000 wine corks did not all come from Califano, but his son who owns a local restaurant. This is not the first creation of corks he has made, but it may be his best, and is the one he is most proud of.

His talent is undeniable, and viewers are bound to admire his passion. Stats for Corked Colosseum Sculptures Trending: Older & Average
