World Class Wire Sculptures

Michael Jackson
We may have lost the King of Pop in the summer of 2009, but his music lives on, as does his likeness, now preserved in chicken wire.
Artist Ivan Lovatt makes remarkably lifelike sculptures of famous folks, icons and wildlife out of material so paltry it’s usually reserved for poultry – chicken wire.
Albert Einstein

Here, the father of relativity is lovingly rendered in chicken wire.
Sir Edmund Hillary
What better way to honor the fabled New Zealand mountaineer, explorer and environmental champion than to recreate his likeness in wire fencing?
