While London is already chock-full of iconic landmarks for the average tourist, the art installation titled Citihenge by Tommy Gun brings a bit of Wiltshire into the mix for those who would rather stay in the heart of the city than travel a bit into the country. A replica of Stonehenge, it is made out of cars instead of stones.
Put together over a span of three months, Citihenge by Tommy Gun is located at London's South Bank near the Tower Bridge. Heralding in the summer solstice, it also unveils Czech car company Skoda's new Citigo car. Made up of 18 junk cars, each one was carefully painted to resemble the stones they are supposed to be replicating.
Strong enough to withstand a Force 12 hurricane, Citihenge by Tommy Gun will be traveling around the United Kingdom.
