The Nike Ball Man is absolutely breathtaking in all its ballsy glory. Reaching 20 meters high, it was constructed out of 5,500 balls, making it look like one giant pixelated sculpture.

Modeled after Manchester forward Carlos Tevez, the Nike Ball Man was designed by Ratcliffe Fowler Design and was located in a Johannesburg shopping mall. After it was disassembled, the balls were donated to football programs around South Africa. Stats for Ballsy Art Installations Trending: Older & Warm
