Nov 11, 2010: Big Hardhat

Actually it's not representing a hardhat, it's representing a bump cap.
But it's really the "Largest sculpture made from recycled materials", certified by Guinness.



Quote:
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.
Soldered? Plastic? Hmmm.
I suppose it could be used for a picnic pavilion.

It looks slippery. I hope the workers who installed it used the proper headgear. If there was an accident they could sue for ironic compensation.

Hee!

Meh, I'm not so impressed with the whole recycled thing -all the energy etc. used to recycle and remold the plastic just for this project. Why not just use old helmets?

ReUse before Recycle.
