Artist's life-size beach sculptures made from driftwood

These majestic horses galloping through the sea may look real but are in fact made from thousands of pieces of driftwood salvaged from the shore.
 
The life-size sculptures are the work of Birmingham-based master craftsman James Doran-Webb, 46, who spent a painstaking six months assembling them as part of celebrations to mark Chinese New Year in Singapore. 
 
Each of the three sculptures stands at around 6ft tall - or 16 hands as horse lovers might say - and is made from roughly 400 pieces of driftwood of varying sizes built around a stainless steel skeleton.
