Bamboo Whip

I thought this was cool.  It is on exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. 
"Toyota" by Rita McBride, 1990

 It is a Toyota Celica made entirely of rattan, handworked by artisans in the Phillippines and designed by Rita McBride.  The detail is incredible and the skill to build this is impressive. 
The MCASD has free admission for students 25 and under which is a great program, and they have a small but perfectly placed set of gallieries in La Jolla overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
