This awesome Tyrannosaurus rex sculpture was created by South Dakota-based cowboy and artist John Lopez using scrap automobile and machine parts. Entitled Heavy Metal Sue, she’s half the size of a real T. rex and was created in honour of "Sue", the largest, most extensive and best preserved T. rex specimen ever found.

Heavy Metal Sue is located in the town of Faith, South Dakota, which is where the real “Sue” was discovered back in 1990.
