Old skateboards used to create cool sculptures

275x250.jpg A Japanese artist has come up with a novel way of using old broken skateboards -- by making sculptures out of them.

Haroshi starts by layering broken boards in a way similar to the method used to create traditional wooden Japanese Great Buddhas.

They are then painstakingly cut and shaped into his final artworks which range from sculptures of body parts to video game characters.

Haroshi became infatuated with skateboarding in his teens and says using boards as a artistic medium elf natural -- he must particularly enjoy cutting boards he has fallen off.
