Austrian artist Erwin Wurm’s latest sculpture is titled Big Kastenmann, which translates to “big box man” in English. This 18-foot-tall sculpture of a headless businessman is made of cast aluminum partially covered in pink enamel paint. The figure wears a long suit jacket without pants. This 1.6 ton corporate sentry guards the area outside of the Standard Hotel in NYC’s Meat Packing District as part of its public art program, so take a trip to the High Line if you’d like to see it up close.
