Although it is clear that these steel animal sculpture are not real, there is a realistic aspect behind each creation that will take people's breath away. Life-like and life-sized, the material is the only reason why it is immediately apparent that these are inanimate objects instead of living creatures. Of course, in the case of the majestic deer, the whimsical touch of the antlers are also a dead giveaway.

Created by artist Byeong Doo Moon, the steel animal sculpture were part of the Sculpture by the Sea exhibit. Made out of wire, the forms are much more intricate than one would first believe. Especially the peacock with its unfurled tail. It is almost hard to grasp how each of the feathers were formed due to their complexity.
