OUTSTANDING NEW SKYLINE SCULPTURES WITH MORE THAN 5000 PIECES

These amazing art pieces were made of what most people see as not very useful material: scrap wood. The Philadelphia-based modern artist JAMES MCNABB has carved thousands of pieces of scrap wood and carefully placed them together to form a vast city skyline creating a modern sculpture. The wooden skyscrapers, made in different shapes and sizes, look remarkably like the Manhattan skyline in New York City.

The collection, totals a staggering five thousand individual buildings also includes a huge ‘city wheel’ – which is almost five feet high. And the contemporary artist explained how the idea came about.

“I grabbed a piece of scrap wood from the bin, and without thinking, made some cuts. In a few minutes the piece started to look strangely familiar, like a screwdriver or a mini skyscraper. I grabbed another piece of scrap wood, and made another object – this time, it looked like wrench, or a table leg. In the next hour I made 15 more – I stayed up that night and worked until morning. In 24 hours I made more than 200, all intricately different from the next.”
