Artist Ivan Lovatt makes sculptures of famous faces using nothing but chicken wire

An artist has recreated the faces of music legends the Beatles, Michael Jackson and Jimi Hendrix (above) using nothing but chicken wire. The lifelike pieces each take more than a month to create by painstakingly twisting and pinning the wire into shape



To date, artist Ivan Lovatt has built up quite a collection of famous faces - from musicians to entertainers and explorers. Here Ivan stands next to one of his favourite sculptures, Mount Everest hero Sir Edmund Hillary



One sculpture, of musician Bob Dylan, is modelled in such exquisite detail you can almost see every hair on his head



Another is the spitting image of Dame Edna Everage and shows the larger-than-life entertainer in her trademark wacky glasses



Mr Lovatt, who lives in the Gold Coast Hinterland, Australia, with his wife, April, and son, James, said his art was time consuming but satisfying. He explained: "Sculptors are always looking for new media and novel ways to use what is available. I had used chicken wire many times to give structure to other types of sculpture. I then started using the wire to sculpt wildlife and as my skills developed I was drawn to the challenge of portrait sculpture". Ivan Lovatt with his sculpture of Andy Warhol
