"Silver Back" (2007) by David Mach. 
In 2007, artist David Mach entered the Guinness Book of Records for creating the "largest coat hanger installation"—a giant gorilla sculpture entitled Silver Back. The seven-foot tall, nine-foot long, five-foot wide piece was constructed from 7,500 hangers.

Silver Back is currently on view as part of the annual Summer Exhibition at London's Royal Academy of Arts. Now in its 242nd year, the RCA Summer Exhibition is the world’s largest open contemporary art exhibition, showcasing work by both emerging and established artists in all media including painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, architecture and film.

Here are more of Mach's innovative sculptures, all created using thousands of matchsticks.
