Most people know that old tyres can be recycled into playground surfaces – but with a bit of imagination and a fair bit of artistic talent, they can also be transformed into the most amazing works of art.
If you want to see some stunning sculptures crafted out of scrap tyres, go to http://greenopolis.com/goblog/green-groove/top-10-recycled-tire-sculptures – you won’t believe your eyes.
The huge towering works of art include dogs and horses, sharks and emus. There’s even a giant buddha whose spare tyres are made up of exactly that and a Tyre-Rannosauras Rex!
Millions of tyres are throw away every year and after years of faithful service it’s quite nice to know that some of them could live on for many more decades bringing a smile to our faces.
