Muhammad Ali sculpture made out of punching bags

This sculpture, made in honor of the boxing legend Muhammad Ali makes use of 1,300 punching bags, supported by 6.5 miles of stainless steel cable, and 2500 pounds of aluminum pipe. Each of the punching bags forms a pixel for the portrait of the boxing great. Artist Michael Kalish thought of the idea back in 2008, and got working on the amazing work of art. Realizing he couldn’t do it all on his own, Kalish enlisted architectural firm Oyler Wu for the structural design. The sculpture will officially be unveiled LA’s Nikon Plaza this month, where Muhammad Ali will himself hang the last bag to complete the portrait.
