Stonehenge Replica made with cars

 

Artist Builds Stonehenge Replica with Recycled Cars in London to Promote Skoda Citigo

One of Britain’s most iconic and mysterious monuments, Stonehenge, has been replicated by a team of sculptors led by artist Tommy Gun to mark the launch of Skoda’s new Citigo model, which is strategically positioned in front of the metal structure.

 

The sculpture, appropriately named Citihenge, is made entirely from recycled car parts and is located on London’s Southbank. It was built using 18 scrap cars and stands at over five metres tall (close to 17 feet). Each henge is five metres wide and the commanding structure weighs a remarkable 36 tonnes.

The structure was erected on site in London in less than 12 hours and according to its creators, it has been engineered to withstand force 12 hurricane winds.

“The Citihenge project has been the most amazing challenge,” said Tommy Gun. “Stonehenge is a huge, iconic structure and the Citihenge replica is too. It is made entirely from old car parts, which taps into my own childhood growing up on a farm where I used to love building and creating things with pieces of discarded machinery.”
