Estonian artist Igor Loskutow is an award winning master of chainsaw art. Based in Germany, he’s part of the Husqvarna chainsaw sculpture team, which travels to events across Europe in order to show off their cutting skills. One of Luskutow’s newest pieces, an incredible dragon bench, is a masterpiece of the art form.
It’s incredible to see how the bench takes shape, with the fantastical animal’s long body forming the seat and its head and tail curling around either side. The wings are especially impressive, as one wraps around as the back rest and the other curves around the sides in a dramatic fashion. Loskutow’s newest creation is now at home next to a butcher shop, but this isn’t his first aim at taming a dragon into seating.
