This is the big guy.
Ripley's Believe it or Not Exhibit at Memphis Zoo.
A Thailand-based creative group constructs life-sized sculptures of animals out of thousands of rubber ribbons cut from motorcycle and bicycle tire treads. Each sculpture in the series has an inner metal rebar and wire armature to create the underlying shape and provide support for the massive weight of the tire tread ribbons. The pieces of tire tread are layered to resemble the texture of animal fur.

Well its so good to see some things getting recycled and put to beautiful work like this. I am with Candace about it would be cool to see someone standing by it for size comparison. Because your beautiful work here makes it look like it stands 10 stories high. The pov, that composing, the gorgeous background, the colors, and those amazing details capture all its fantastic work. A favorite for me Candace. Incredible work. #11680911
