World's Largest Recycled Artwork

Take a look at the picture. This is a sculpture made of thousands of used aluminum cans collected from around the UK. In fact, it is the world's largest recycled artwork, which was unveiled at Seven Sisters, East Sussex to mark Recycle Week 22-28 June 2009. Recycle Week is a new drive to encourage consumers to recycle their cans and bottles.

The giant sculpture, called Precious Metal, took a team of artists a week to complete and can only be fully viewed from the air. It is inspired by a classic 1949 summer poster from the Coca-Cola, which shows a swimsuit-clad lady relaxing in the sun. The odd sculpture was led by the award-winning Cornish sculptor Robert Bradford.
