An artist collected thousands of lost hub caps from roadsides across Britain and turned them into spectacular animal sculptures. Ptolemy Elrington, 43, works full-time in his studio crafting shiny dolphins, dogs and dragons from all grades of hub cap - from BMW and Mercedes to Ford and Volvo. He fixes the caps together using wire salvaged from scrap yards and cuts them with a craft knife and hacksaw.
