Unique Statues Made From Old Chains

A chain is a series of connected links which are typically made of metal. A chain may consist of two or more links.
Chains are usually made in one of two styles, according to their intended use:
Those designed for lifting, such as when used with a hoist; for pulling; or for securing, such as with a bicycle lock, have links that are torus shaped, which makes the chain flexible in two dimensions (The fixed third dimension being a chain’s length.)
Those designed for transferring power in machines have links designed to mesh with the teeth of the sprockets of the machine, and are flexible in only one dimension. They are known as Roller chains, though there are also non-roller chains such as block chain.
Two distinct chains can be connected using a quick link which resembles a carabiner with a screw close rather than a latch.
Uses for chain include:
Bicycle chain, transfers power from the pedals to the drive-wheel of a bicycle thus propelling it
Chain drive, the main feature that differentiated the safety bicycle
Chain gun, type of machine gun that is driven by an external power source, sometimes connected by a chain, to actuate the mechanism rather than using recoil
Chain pumps, type of water pump where an endless chain has positioned on it circular discs
Chain-linked Lewis, lifting device made from two curved steel legs
Chainsaw, portable mechanical, motorized saw using a cutting chain to saw wood.
