Tiger Carpet Made From 500,000 Cigarettes

Asia has the largest population of smokers on the planet, so it's no wonder why Chinese artist Xu Bing is so fascinated with cigarettes and the tobacco industry. Bing recently assembled a team of fellow artists to help create this massive Tiger Carpet arranged from 500,000 cigarettes. The tiger is an important symbol in Chinese myth and culture, and Xu Bing's latest work brings to light more recently acquired cultural identities. Craze. [WhuDat]
