If you think creating a wire frame model in a 3D application is a long and tiresome process, just imagine trying to recreate a wire frame motorcycle and sidecar in real life.
Well Artist Shi Jindian has done just that and the results are very impressive.
The steel sculpture has been created by a technique that allows the artist to crochet the two dimensional wire strands together around the object he wants to create. When the mesh is complete, Shi Jindian destroys or extracts the object, leaving only its steel exoskeleton.
His Blue CJ750 (2008) is a replica of the Chiangjiang 750 military bike based on a pre-World War II BMW and took him three years to build.
