Tiger Skin Rug Made From 500,000 Cigarettes

Chinese artist Xu Bing probably wanted a tiger rug to smoke, or smoked something and had the idea of making a bigass tiger rug. Either way, he has a 440 pound tiger rug made from about half a million cigarettes. Bing and a group of artists worked together, stacking cigarettes in the shape of a tiger skin rug, and giving it the necessary style and shading. One thing we can be sure of, Bing isn’t ever going to run short of cigarettes.
