Carving doesn't necessarily have to be done on materials like wood, which is why Belguim designer Wim Delvoye decided to take his carving skills to an unusual place: car tires. Carefully detailed and interestingly carved, these tires will add a new meaning to what is typically conceived as a masculine object.

These pieces show how art can give a new whole concept to everyday objects. The design is very delicate and soft, connecting a wide range of emotions and meaning to an object which is usually related to power and speed. Wim Delvoye's pieces are high decorative with its delicate patterns that evoke nature and femininity.

Delvoye is recognized for its innovative artist concepts in the mechanics and automobiles; in addition, to the idea of taking an everyday object and transforming it completely.
