Father Of Dragons? This Artist Makes Incredible Sculptures Out Of Rocks And Metal

If you’re in the market for a dragon sculpture made out of metal, then have we found the artist for you. Keep scrolling even if you’re not though, because these images shouldn’t be missed.

Ryan McCallister of Scottsdale, Arizona isn’t your typical artist. He makes life-size sculptures of majestic beasts out of rocks and metal. As the following pictures show, the rocks go inside of the sculptures to round out the pieces.

After five weeks of anticipation, I present to you: "Kur" (world under the earth) This name derives from Sumerian mythology. Although the word for earth was Ki, Kur came to also mean land, and Sumer itself, was called "Kur-gal" or "Great Land". "Kur-gal" also means "Great Mountain" and is a metonym for both Nippur and Enlil who rules from that city. Ekur, "mountain house" was the temple of Enlil at Nippur. A second, popular meaning of Kur was "underworld", or the world under the earth. FYI the rust will of course accelerate to a beautiful orange throughout. It may need a few more weeks to reach its full oxidation. I will post another when it get there. Thanks again everyone for bearing with me.
