Wei Wei’s Marble Construction Helmet

Wei Wei, China’s greatest contemporary artist, is exhibiting down at the Hirsshorn Museum in Washington, D.C. I saw the exhibit other day and made videos of a couple of his works. The one here is a marble life-size sculpture of a construction helmet. After I loaded the video onto my computer, I watched it and took a picture of one of the frames. I edited this picture some, and this is what I came up with.
