The truth to the saying 'one man's garbage is another man's treasure' was underlined with a flourish when German artists created an exhibit of 1000 statues fashioned entirely of refuse.

The statues were installed in Rome and will be on display for nearly two weeks.

Implications - It's an impressive concept considering how most turn a blind eye to garbage for obvious reasons., but these artists have shown that even the most revolting things can be transformed into works of art. The eco approach and the setting of beautiful Rome makes these pieces all the more attractive. The only question remains is where these artisans came up with so much trash to use in their first place. It couldn't have been a pleasant experience to go hunting for all of that junk.
