Istanbul-based artist Selçuk Yılmaz created this incredibly awesome lion sculpture using nearly 4,000 pieces of scrap metal. He spent almost a year working on this piece, which required hand-cutting and hammering each of those 4,000 pieces of metal.

Yılmaz named his sculpture Aslan, which is the Turkish word for Lion, and immediately makes us think of “the great Lion” Aslan from The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. The big, shiny cat weighs about 550 pounds (250 kg) and makes us want to travel to Narnia.

Check out more of Selçuk’s artwork via Behance.

Head over to Colossal for more photos of this magnificent metal king of beasts.

A national tragedy.

It’s interesting. Also, it’s got such a huge female following. The original [Sir Arthur Conan Doyle] stories had a huge female following, which I’d never forgotten, and that’s because the Victorian ladies liked the way Sherlock looked. (Laughs.) So I thought, use this massively exciting, rather handsome man who could see right through your heart and have no interest … of course, he’s going to be a sex god! I think we pitched that character right. I think our female fanbase all believe that they’ll be the one to melt that glacier. They’re all wrong, nothing will melt that glacier.

The Hollywood Reporter Interviews Steven Moffat, 1/1/2014

I’m sorry, the answer you have provided does not compute. Could you mean:

"young women love a thrilling detective show as much as men do"
or
"young women enjoy the (explicitly homoerotic and) incredibly dynamic friendship of a person and his best friend, and how it grows over time"
or
"young women appreciate the visual and mental stimulation of good television programming"

You can also try “young women are not limited exclusively to liking things because they find someone physically appealing,” “young women as a whole do not want to be the one to ‘fix’ an emotionally unavailable sociopathic man, and it is damaging to assume that having those qualities makes someone a ‘sex god’,” or “young women do not imagine themselves with Sherlock, moron, do you even know your fanbase, every square inch of it is covered in Johnlock because women appreciate the interplay between those two characters, not everyone is a goddamned Mary Sue like you, god damn it.

Please try again.

Does he realize the original stories were written down? I think Sherlock looked however his readers wanted him to look!

im stunned. i am stunned. like, by the fact that i have seen so many with steven moffat where he is like “AND I REALISED, OF COURSE!! THAT THE EXPLANATION FOR THIS LADY’S ACTIONS IS THAT SHE WAS INTO A DUDE!” like is this guy completely incapable of wrapping his weird square head around the idea that a woman could have any motivation for anything that is not being attracted to a dude

(via tigerhazard)

There was the Strand magazine serials with illustrations, but to simplify all of that down to “they must like him because he’s attractive” shows just how limiting Moffat writing women really is.
