Giant Lipstick Sculpture By Agne Kisonaite

Eastern European painter and sculptress, Agne Kisonaite, created this stunning sculpture, entitled simply Giant Lipstick, using over 5000 used lipstick tubes. Measuring a height of 2.5 meters (8 feet) with an overall weight of 200kg (440 pounds), the sculpture is incredibly modern and yet timelessly beautiful. Agne made the sculpture to draw attention to the need for green effort consciousness with regard to reduction, recycling and reuse here in our consumer culture

In her artist statement, she emphasizes that four tubes of lipstick are sold in the world every second and the packaging left cannot be recycled.

Please note that the top, or red colored part, of the sculpture is obviously comprised new, or rather unused lipsticks, and that the work was sponsored by Avon, who likely donated the lipsticks and tubes/packaging for use in the sculpture.

The Big Fishes is a wonderfully whimsical sculpture that was made from collected and assembled discarded plastic bottles. What a cool way to go green! The sculpture is currently installed at Botafogo Beach in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. At night, the work is illuminated so that beachgoers can continue to enjoy the piece even when it’s dark out!
