Muhammad Ali’s Sculpture Made From Sand Bags

1 comment

LA-based artist Michael Kalish created this impressive three-dimensional sculpture of three-time heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali using 1,300 punching bags, 6.5 miles of stainless steel cable, and 2,500 pounds of aluminum pipe. The 22-foot-high installation is reported to have taken three years to complete.


An array of custom-made, teardrop-shaped speed bags suspended in midair that, from just one vantage point, align themselves to reveal an image of Ali’s face. The installation is slated to go on view in March at LA’s Nokia Plaza. At the unveiling ceremony, Muhammad Ali is supposed to hang the final bag.
