During National Insect Week this summer, I came across this wonderful sculpture of dung beetles pushing a ball of dung created by Made by a Prince from recycled metal objects including spoons. After a chat on Twitter, the prince in question kindly agreed to let me share these photos of his animal, bird and insect creations with you such as a dragonflies, a woodpecker, a very cute mouse in a nest and some little owls. Alan Prince, the man behind these sculptures, says:
I get most of my inspiration from the nature in the countryside, in north Devon where I live with my wife and Jess, the Jack Russell. Most of my work is ‘upcycled' using cutlery, copper tanks, plumbing fittings etc… Even old coins, made into money spiders!
