Helsinki-based sculptor Miina Äkkijyrkkä is facinated with both cars and cows, both in the natural sense of working on a farm with cows, and in the sense of using a cow as inspiration and subject in her art. The Finland-based artist purchases dozens of used vehicles from dealers around Finland and uses them to create enormous cow sculptures that look like the four-legged war machines used in Star Wars.. Gigantic creatures these are.
You may ask why cows? Well, It seems like an incredible career shift happened to her, however she never forgot where she started. check her CV below:
