These dog sculptures aren't just your average animal sculptures. These sculptures are made out of one of the most unusual materials you will see in any modern sculpture: bicycle chains.

For those who ride bicycles and have had to deal with their chains when they disconnect, they can understand how amazing these sculptures are. The sculptures are so realistic that if you didn't look directly at them as you walked by, you would confuse them for real dogs.

The sculptures are made by Israeli artist Nirit Levav by hand and they come in a variety of breeds. She has made huskies, Yorkshire terriers and poodles amongst others. All of these sculptures are also to scale so you can only imagine how many bicycle chains each of these dog sculptures take.
