Giant Sculptures

Artist: Do Ho Suh

Korean artist Do Ho Suh (previously here) created this intriguing sculptural installation titled 'Karma'.

The 23 feet (7 meters) sculpture towering into the sky depicts a tower of men sitting atop one another while shielding each other's eyes, made from 98 cast stainless steel figures.

Artist: Joana Vasconcelos

Paris-born, Lisbon-based artist Joana Vasconcelos created this elegant pair of high-heeled sandals made of dozens of stainless steel pots, pans, and lids of varying sizes.

The eye-catching sculpture titled 'Marylin', was inspired by the high-heel shoes worn by Marylin Monroe in the infamous clip from “The Seven Year Itch”.

"The unlikely yet assertive association between the saucepans and high-heeled sandals, two paradigmatic symbols of Woman's private and public dimensions, proposes a revision of the Feminine in the light of the practices of the contemporary world. The recourse to saucepans, sign to which one would associate the traditional domestic sphere of Woman, in order to reproduce an enormous high-heeled sandal, symbol of beauty and elegance demanded by social conventions, contradicts the impossibility of the dichotomic relation of the Feminine in the domestic and social spheres."

Artist: Olga Ziemska

Cleveland-based sculptor Olga Ziemska created this sculpture entitled 'Stillness in motion: The Matka Series', made from reclaimed willow branches and wire.

Artist: Theo Mercier

French sculptor, painter, and photographer Theo Mercier created this very emotional piece, entitled 'Le Solitaire', a 10-foot-tall sculpture made completely of a pile of silicone coated cords that look like spaghetti.

"The one who is showed, who is watched, he is unique and alone because he is a monster. It tells a lot about the idea of exposure."

Brooklyn, New York-based artist Tara Donovan created this beautiful 11-foot-tall sculpture made of thin polyester film or mylar.

Artist: Andy Scott

Glaswegian sculptor Andy Scott spent almost 8 years planning and one year fabrication and assembly to create 'The Kelpies', a pair of gargantuan horse heads that reach into the skies above Falkirk & Grangemouth in central Scotland.

They are the largest works of art in Scotland, and the largest equine sculptures in the world, measuring 30 meters tall (99 ft.) and are meant as a monument to the horse-powered heritage of Scotland.

"The Kelpies name reflected the mythological transforming beasts possessing the strength and endurance of 10 horses; a quality that is analogous with the transformational change and endurance of Scotland’s inland waterways. The Kelpies represent the lineage of the heavy horse of Scottish industry and economy, pulling the wagons, ploughs, barges and coalships that shaped the geographical layout of the Falkirk area." - Wikipedia
