An Israel-based artist named Nirit Levav has recently discovered that she is quite gifted when it comes to turning old bicycle chains into dog sculptures.

One would assume that Nirit Levav's creation would lean more on the side of abstract art, yet (as the picture above shows), the resemblance between the final artwork and the pooch that served as an inspiration for it is stunning, to say the least.

Inhabitat reports that the first such sculpture Nirit Levav ever designed and pieced together was one of a Rottweiler.

Apparently, the artist was simply contemplating a pile of salvaged metal goods when it struck her that she might as well use the junk in front of her eyes to create a metal replica of man's best friend.

Nirit Levav's collection of sculptures now includes several breeds, amongst which Greyhounds, Cocker Spaniels and poodles.
