Created by Colombian artist Otoniel Borda Garzón, this towering 40 foot (12 meter) torando of scrap wood was installed last year as a centerpiece at the Bogota International Art Fair. Garzón is known for his twisting organic vortices constructed primarily from old pieces of lumber that seem to dominate gallery spaces, an ongoing series of work he refers to simply as Reserva. You can see more of this twisting sculpture over on Behance.
