"Is that a wall made out of rope?" — No, it's a wall made out of cement and looks just like rope! This cement rope wall was made by Australian artist Dani Marti. It started with a template of woven ropes of varying sizes and weaves…

…Dani then slathered the ropes with rubber and fiberglass. Using a timber frame to support the mold, Dani then filled it with cement.

I'm completely inspired by this and the possible DIY projects that can be created from using molds and cement in a similar method — but on a much smaller scale!
