Sculptures Made From Tires

Recycle, reuse, rethink how we look at garbage.  Tires are an especially volatile item, as they take up space and emit terrible fumes when burned.  Check out Oddee's collection of creative sculptures made from discarded tires.

Update 10/15/09 by Alex: The artist is Mirko Siakkou-Flodin, and this particular tire sculpture is at the Jumeirah Beach Residence in Dubai, UAE. Oddee is a great source of many interesting things, and they usually credit their photos, so I wonder why they didn't do it in this instance.

Aah lol, yes, he's running away from his brother and the fury of his fans after having cancelled the show in France.

More seriously, there's a lot of hype about using discarded materials to create pratical or decorative objets, the idea is obviously good, I think however that these items should sell for a fair price.
Remember the tinny tin can cars, planes and motos made in Africa? I thought that when these items were in shops the overprice was due because the shops paid the creators a good one, but not. The shops just make enormous profits by taking advantage of press covers and customers who think they do a good action like for fair trading...
