Top 10 Amazing Sculptures Made of Drinks Cans

I am not the kind of guy that people would instantly associate with the being an “Art Lover”, sure I do appreciate a good painting like the Mona Lisa but when it comes to modern art I just have not got a clue.

But Japanese artist “Makaon” has done just that and it does bring me great pleasure to bring you just a small selection of her work…
