These figures are made from recycled materials including wire and strips from cans. They were  handmade by an unknown artist in South Africa. 


The process of creating such objects  is not easy and can take days to be completed. The subjects are found in the artist  own environment. Nativity scenes, animals and cars are among the most popular subjects. 


 Handcrafted in the largest informal settlement in South Africa. Orange Farm (basically a squatter town of shacks) located about 28mi (45km) from Johannesburg, Gauteng Province, is home to many Zimbabweans in-exile.
