Stone Giant Erupts out of the Earth

This is Feltépve, an enormous public sculpture by Hungarian artist Ervin Loránth Hervé. It appears to be a giant ripping out of the earth in a violent rampage.

Hervé made it out of polystyrene, which he painted to look like rock. He put it on display in the Széchenyi Square in Budapest, Hungary for Art Market Budapest, a recent art fair. Hervé says that his "goal was to show people that pieces of contemporary art can be integral parts of a city, that they can become one of its building blocks." He advocates for more contemporary sculptures in public places and hopes that Feltépve will help convince the public to support that goal.

You can see more photos of it at My Modern Met.
