Amazing Beetle Sphere Sculpture by Ichwan Noor

Jakatara-based sculptor Ichwan Noor made this incredible sculpture of a 1953 Volkswagen Beetle that, combined with polyester and aluminum, has been morphed into a perfect sphere. The Beetle is one of a series of spherical and cubical vehicle sculptures by the Ichwan Noor and this year’s Art Basel Hong Kong.

From the artist:

The idea emerged from a personal perception towards objects that are products of a “transportation culture”, which induces hints/signs of spiritual emotion. To behold a vehicle (car) is to have a “magical” (supernatural) identity. Sculptures represent the interaction between humans and the object realm, with strong spiritual tension that affects the subconscious, and that yields a new “animistic” attitude. Read more here.
