Original, Sculpture | 57 × 18 × 11 cm | Freestanding

‘The Hunter’ is inspired by Bagheera, a character from Rudyard Kipling’s renowned book, The Jungle Book, the sculptor’s favourite childhood read. The main objective of the artwork was to capture the predator’s tense body position just before it launches. He was created with over 90 repurposed car and motorcycle parts.

Upcycled metal


Tomas Vitanovsky, a former stuntman from the Czech Republic, discovered his talent for creating steampunk artworks while working as a mechanic. One day, he found that welding broken motorcycle parts not only gave him gratification by transforming something unwanted into something desirable, but also replaced the adrenaline rush he missed from his stunt career. Over the last decade, his lifelike and spirited sculptures have gained international recognition, attracting collectors worldwide and leading him to collaborations with household names such as General Motors, Lamborghini, and Harley-Davidson.
