I came across this very interesting set of pictures on the internet today. (Go to photo #5) At first glance, it is just a plain old tiger skin rug. However, upon closer inspection, it is actually more than 500,000 cigarettes. This piece of artwork was created by a Chinese artist by the name of Xu Bing. The message behind the artwork is to “highlight global trade, packaging and how people are seduced into deadly smoking habits.” (via The Telegraph)
