Larger than Life

Since we're on the topic of recycling boxes,
I thought this was a good time to share
some super cool sculptures. They
are store window displays at the
Nike shop in Soho, New York City.

Standing at least 6 feet tall, this
creature is one big basketball fanatic.

Here's the back view -- see how he's
spinning the ball?

Can you believe that this is made
entirely out of shoe boxes?

Here's another one made of
black & white shoe boxes.

They were created by talented artist
Christophe Roberts...which he started
because he had so many Nike
shoe boxes in his closet.

Check-out this video on how he puts
sculptures like these together.

Awesome right?
Have an enjoyable weekend!


  1. love these! my hubby works at nike, so maybe that helps. i love seeing good ideas for what to do with shoe boxes!

  2. definitely looks cool. Couldn't tell it was made out of "scraps" from first glance.
