Terminator Sculpture by Enrique Ramos

Ripley's Believe It Or Not!
But only weirdest art master Enrique Ramos can make a "Terminator" sculpture out of clay, resit and bits of vampire bat AND turn the entire Arnold Schwarzenegger piece into a tribute to the history of film.

The life-size statue features images of everyone from Charlie Chaplin to Johnny Depp, and scenes of films ranging from "Jaws" and "Rocky" to "The Wizard of Oz" and "Harry Potter."

It's a true mixed-media work, and Ripley's Believe It or Not! recently acquired it with the intention of placing it in their Orlando, Florida Odditorium.

"Mr. Ramos has been a part of the Ripley family for over 20 years, supplying us with many fantastic exhibits," Edward Meyer, Ripley's VP of Exhibits and Archives, said in a press release. "This piece, however, is his opus - his 9th Symphony - both in complexity, detail and historic scope. He has virtually told the history of the film industry in one spectacular sculpture."

Ripley's other Ramos works include a portrait of Eminem done in M&Ms.

Ramos plans to make a motorcycle in the same style -- and when it's complete, both pieces will be put on display at the Hollywood Odditorium.
