The Beetle Sphere

Created by Ichwan Noor an artist from Jakarta, Indonesia. A graduate of the Indonesian Art Institute, Yogyakarta.




The sculpture is made from real parts from a 1953 VW beetle, along with aluminum and polyester molded in a sphere. Currently the beetle sphere is on display at the Mondecor Gallery in Jakarta, Indonesia. 




 

Possibly inspired by the Bus Ball. Created by ZZ Tops' Billy Gibbons.

What is it about Volkswagens that so many artists seem to gravitate towards?

What are your favorite VW inspired art works?
