What do you do with your hub caps when they wear out or become outdated? You could toss it in the garbage like most of us, but that's not what the people do at They use the hubcaps of cars to create modern art, with a heavy emphasis on fish and other creatures of the animal kingdom.

Most of the hubcaps used at are found on the side of the road; accordingly, the wear and tear on these discarded tire accessories is completely one of a kind.

Implications - The rise of environmentalism has created a niche for artists whose preferred medium is recycled junk. These eco-friendly art pieces turn trash into treasure.
