1953 Volkswagen Turned into a Sphere

Bumblebee, roll out! Indonesian artist Ichwan Noor made this sphere that is 1.8 meters across out of an actual Volkswagen. He writes:

The sculpture’s visual form yields an impression of a sphere - the basis of all forms. The shape of a car is pressed onto the spherical form, producing a dynamic movement, a certain flexibility, but also fragility. It is a concept of “totems” that is embraced/believed by the people of today.

"...an actual Volkswagen."

I can't explain why, but I doubt it. I would have expected a more "wadded up" appearance.
The windows are obviously plastic add-ons, but the running board through the door handle is also highly unlikely.

Still, it's a well executed sculpture. Neat!
