Dutch Artist Makes Sculpture Out Of 10,000 Pairs Of Flip-Flops

Here’s an interesting use for your summertime wardrobe: rather than let it waste away in your closet all year, why not turn it into sculpture?

This one was made by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofma, and it lives in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Hofma enlisted the help of students, and together they covered his inflatable base with 10,000 pairs of flops. The end result, called Macaco Gordo, or The Fat Monkey, is over 45 feet long.
