Talented French artist Pierre Matter creates sculptures that combine metallic materials with organic content. These striking steampunk artworks are definitely attention grabbing. Some of these sculptures depict humans, while others are built to look like wild animals.

What's really intriguing about these steampunk style pieces is that many of these animals are extremely detailed, and look quite realistic. Considering that they were made from mechanical materials, that's pretty impressive.

Matter aims to change the way that people think about living creatures. He claims that people view cows as milk machine, and his artworks take that attitude and apply it to other lifeforms. These stellar cyborg sculptures are beautifully crafted. They present animals and humans in a new, more mechanical light.
