Arankumar H. G. is an Indian artist who created an enormous bottle cap structure for the Danish festival 'Sculpture by the Sea.' While the pavilion is extremely beautiful, it comes with a strong message about environmentalism.

The sculpture is titled 'Droppings and the Damn' and it is made up of nearly 70,000 bottle caps. Arankumar collected the bottle caps from all over the world, which demonstrates the widespread prevalence of plastic pollution in our environment. The bottle caps are connected by a series of steel wires that bend and twist to create the illusion of waves. The bottles caps alternate in color, which gives them the impression of a seaside mosaic.

Arankumar's bottle cap structure serves as a stark commentary on global pollution and the importance of dealing with the issue of plastic waste.
