日本金属艺术家Nozomu Uchida 使用称为“Tankin”的传统方法创造了令人难以置信的动物雕塑，其中包括锤击金属板以形成形状。
In the animals, insects, and other living things I use as the base image for my work, I portray them as having specialized skills such as flight or diving; abilities which humans cannot emulate. I have thus visualized a combination merging how humans have compensated for the lack of these skills using scientific technology with animals that inherently possess such skills. At the same time, I also create the image of how these living things have adapted. As for my means for producing my work, I make use a metalwork technique known as hammer forging, with iron as my main material. The hardness, the blackness, the texture – I want you to immerse yourself in how I have utilized this material.
