Three horses galloping along the seafront in Cebu, Philippines.<br />
<br />
These majestic horses galloping along a white sand beach may look real - but in fact they're made from thousands of pieces of driftwood salvaged from beach.<br />
<br />
The life-size sculptures are the work of British master craftsman James Doran-Webb and took a painstaking six months to assemble.<br />
<br />
They stand at around 6ft tall - or 16 hands in horse terms - and each is made from 400 pieces of driftwood of varying sizes built around a stainless steel skeleton.<br />
<br />
They weigh half a tonne each once complete and can take the weight of five people.<br />
<br />
James cleverly makes them with moveable limbs so they can be arranged into lifelike poses.<br />

The intricate trio of horses were constructed for the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, a nature park similar to Cornwall's Eden project.
