This giant coat hanger sculpture of gorilla (above left), by artist David Mach, has made the news recently with its installation at London's Royal Academy of Arts new Summer Exhibition opening this week. Mach has been making incredible sculptures out of unusual materials for two decades though. For example, he created a series of Matchheads, from wooden matchsticks, including the bear above, Buddha, a ram, and a gorilla. Also not to miss is his previous coat hanger sculpture of the female form, titled "Hooker." David Mach
