A Different Kind of Masterpiece

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; Beauty is art. To celebrate beauty where ever we may find it. All that delights the senses, visual, auditory, taste, touch and be it natural, man made, culinary - eye candy in general and sensory delights.

When you contribute a huge amount of waste into the environment, and the world is suddenly aware of the issue, putting a spin on your waste is highly desirable. Coca-Cola arranged for some fine artists to convert their trash into treasures. Putting them on display with a message to reduce, reuse and recycle, Coke hopes to be seen as part of the solution and not the problem.

Artist Sam McGeeverhas recreated iconic London landmarks including Big Ben, Angel Of The North, the Clifton Suspension Bridge, and even the Birmingham Bull of Wall Street fame.

The sculptures were originally on display at the original grounds of each landmark, but whether they are still there is not confirmed.
