Art/Suit for Stephen Hawking


Sculptor Michael Rea has a unique gift. With a wry sense of humor, he created "A Prosthetic Suit For Stephen Hawking with Japanese Steel" out of wood, rope, and foam in 2007 as a tribute to the scientist. He made the art after seeing Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill." The robotic suit is 8' tall, has a hatch in the back, and is also interactive. Check out more of Rea's art on his site.
