Chinese artist Liao Yibai is no stranger when it comes to working with stainless-steel, as he has previously created a whole variety of objects; however, this time he constructed a real-life camera modeled after Leica's products. The result is striking because of its size and high level of detailed.
This gigantic photographic equipment is made of wood, wire and clay in its interiors, and stainless-steel in its exterior, which explains the sculpture's shines. There are only three copies of this piece.
Purses, hamburgers, dollar bills, heels, rings and watches are some other incredible examples of the brilliant artistic portfolio of Liao Yibai. No matter what this designer comes up with, he certainly does it in style.
