The Guardian of the Hole by U-Ram Choe is a metal sculpture that can actually breath. This odd-shaped worm that seems to lay lifeless on the ground actually gasps for air.

Designed by Korean-born designer U-Ram Choe, who comes from a family of artists, this animal resembles a sea fossil. This art piece has an internal mechanism that makes it contract and expand, giving the illusion of a breathing sequence. Additionally, the long branches located on its body also have the ability to move their tips, which creates a beautiful and delicate dance effect. The name of the figure means Custos Cavum in Latin, and it was inspired by Indian God Shiva as Lord of Dance.

The Guardian of the Hole by U-Ram Choe is a harmonic masterpiece exhibited from now until December 31st, 2011 at the Asia Society Museum in New York.
