A gallant knight of recycled metal armor charges through time with lance and shield at hand. Peru's Miguel Mejia sculpts this masterpiece from motorcycle parts and scrap metal, astutely transforming them into a vivid sculpture. "I made the horse from several pipes which I joined to the legs with bolts; a motorbike chain became the neck and a rocker arm from a carburetor the head and jowls. I used a nut for the mouth, the handle of a spoon for the horse's helmet, five wires for the tail and metal sheets and bicycle chain for the cloak," Mejía explains. "For the knight's body I used a nail from a clutch as well as bolts, and I made the head, arms and legs from different nuts. The helmet is shaped from metal sheet, the shoulders and wrists from spools. The removable lance comes from a long bolt and metal sheets, and the shield features a chain. The stand, which features my signature, is made from motorcycle chains and metal sheet."
