South Dakota sculptor John Lopez creates spectacular sculptures made of old farm equipment. His scrap creations reflect the legends and images of his prairie land.

One of Lopez’s latest creations is the « French Buffalo ». This life-size American Bison made with more than 100 pieces of recycled material, is the artist’s first work to be exhibited permanently in France, in the Parc animalier de Sainte Croix.
