Historic Events as Repurposed Art

This sculpture made by two Cuban artists Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz is entirely made from old shirts.  The sparse use of color and near-symmetry are very powerful.  It's particularly fascinating, because I imagine it would be very difficult to build a sculpture using objects as big as shirts.  Each shirt would need to be very deliberately placed to give it the realistic aspect it undoubtedly achieves.
