A massive and intimidating Giger-esque Alien sculpture is up for auction on eBay. Starting bid is $3999:
This amazing ALIEN-like sculpture is made out of scrap metal and old auto parts such as nuts & bolts, connecting rods, motorcycle chains, gears, spark plugs, bearings, springs and whatever can be found in junkyards. Artists spent approximately 2 months to create this incredible piece of art by collecting different parts from the junkyards and welding them together piece by piece. It was polished and coated with lacquer to prevent it from rusting. This sculptre is about 7 feet in height, comes in 7 different pieces legs, body, left arm, right arm, head and tail with incredible details. Very easy to assemble just need some muscles. We never put him on a scale but the estimate weight is about 300-400 lbs. This will be a great conversation piece in any living rooms.The same artists are also auctioning junkyard models of the USS Enterprise, Predator, Boba Fett, and Robbie the Robot.
