When tires retire they are often resold or thrown into the dumpster. If you’re from Springfield, they go to the infamous tire fire. What Korean artist, Yong Ho Ji, does with those tires is far more interesting. He cuts them up to use as a medium for his amazing, life-like animal sculptures. In a varying array of species, Yong has made impressive sculptures of buffalos, bears, spiders (eek!) and countless others.
