Artist Links Thousands of Paperclips to Form Sculptures

Italian sculptor Pietro D’Angelo, from Palermo, uses  tiny paper -clips  (use to hold documents together) to  make mind-blowing figurative sculptures. He started making sculptures using marble and clay as his medium of choice like other sculptors.  Then he decided to challenge himself. So, he links paper-clips together with varying degrees of tightness, allowing D’Angelo the flexibility to create objects, as well as the human form.
