Recycled Can be Beautiful

December 7, 2010

from The Cellar Image of the Day

But it’s really the “Largest sculpture made from recycled materials”, certified by Guinness.

The sculptor, Rafael Melida and his team had spent 1,239 hours on this project over the last 3 months. All the plastic helmets were made with recycled plastic especially for this sculpture. They had been diligently ordered and then soldered onto a metal frame by the team of sculptors after students at the Univeristy of Huelva aided the collection of all these helmets.

Measuring 10.4 m x 7.8 m x 6.1 m the sculpture easily exceeded the Guinness World Records imposed minimum of 5 m x 5 m x 5 m for this new record category.
