Artist nails full size Mini Cooper S sculpture from 7000 nails
From wooden cars to functioning Lego replicas to amazing car art and some other creations from scrap auto parts, we have seen them all. The creations are simply fabulous and mark the ingenuity of the creator. Adding to the long list of beautifully sculpted art cars is this Mini Cooper S transparent sculpture of 2008 model, created using nothing but nails.
The Mini Cooper S sculpture comes out of the skilled hands of Munich based sculptor Alexander Geissler who toiled hard for 200 hours to meticulously shape this amazing feat, while keeping in mind the details and proportions of the original car.
In order to give Mini Cooper S a nailed treatment, Alexander welded approximately 8 inches long, 7000 nails together to create a sculpture that measures 3.63 meters in length, 1.68 meters in width and 1.43 meters in height. Almost identical in size to Mini cooper S, the total weight of the sculpture is 300kg. However, it remains an art for art sake but is a beautiful imagination for sure.
