March 1, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Artist Michael Kalish created this brilliant portrait of Muhammad Ali using 1,300 punching bags, 6.5 miles of steel cable, and 2,500 pounds of aluminum pipe. The entire installation of the heavyweight champion took nearly three years to complete and stands 22 feet high.
