Steel Wire 3D Sculptures

Artist Shi Jindian created these amazing 3D sculptures from steel wire.
By trial and error, he learned how to crochet the two-dimensional strands into three-dimensional forms, using tools of his own devising. His wire meshes start out as wrappings around some common object. When the mesh is complete, Shi Jindian destroys or extracts the object, leaving only its steel exoskeleton.
