Click above for a gallery of photos of this incredible stone Testarossa sculpture

No, this isn't the result of some prehistoric Dietrich getting his hands on a friend's Ferrari, nor did some stand-up comic drive a Testarossa into a cement mixer. It's actually a sculpture carved by two artists with a taste for the dramatic. Artists Daniel Dewar and Grégory Gicquel have been working together on projects like this one since 1998. They've crafted Nike tennis shoes, BMX bikes, electric guitars, skateboards and motorcycle helmets, all out of wood. They've also created a giant wrought iron Big Bertha golf club and other works that are increasingly kitschy and Surrealistic. Their works have been displayed all over the world, but this one has really captured our attention. It is a stone Ferrari Testarossa that has enough detail to be instantly recognizable, but is intentionally left raw and busted apart to resemble a fossil of the once proud supercar. It's a fun piece of automobilia and social commentary all in one. Take a look at the gallery and check out the duos' website to learn more about these gifted artists.

      I don't get it...

        It's an ill-conceived depiction of a "red haired" Ferrari done by..."stoned" sculptors.

      "Like a rock"

      I can't be the only person who thinks this is a *great* sculpture...

        You're not, I think it looks awesome too. A plain old car carved out of rock would be boring. This is far more interesting.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Totally agree. It's like some ancient ruin you've stumbled across... Brilliant.

      Uh oh, looks like some rich jackass with too much money and not enough brains was driving.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Amazing, like those Lego cars awhile back.

      Did they drop it? What a waste of rock.

      At first I was like just about everyone, thinking basically that it sucked. But after reading the explanation about the artist thought process, it really makes sense and is a great sculpture!

      It looks like a huge rock fell onto an awesome sculpture and broke it into pieces?

      Hey if people can carve naked people out of marble I don't see why not a car.
