This insane sculpture by Tomokazu Matsuyama is called "Wherever I Am," and it's the centerpiece of his solo show in NYC called "Glancing at Twin Peaks." The giant fiberglass sculpture depicts a Playmobil-inspired jockey riding atop a silver horse; the whole piece stands over 2 meters (over 6.5 feet) tall.

Tomokazu Matsuyama's exhibition featured a ton of his other work, all of which add a contemporary twist to classic pop culture icons. There's plenty more at the link below, but I was so taken with this sculpture that I had to dedicate the gallery above to it. Stats for Giant Playmobil-Inspired Jockeys Trending: Older & Chilly
