Well-known Australian artist Erwin Wurm has come up with some creative executions for personal projects and advertising campaigns. His latest one is a unique piece done for Vienna’s Law Enforcement.

The art installation, labeled 'Polizeikappe,' is an oversized police cap similar to the one worn by the law enforcers of Vienna. Erwin Wurm's idea was to have giant police caps installed in Vienna's Hero's Square, providing shelter for those who are caught in the rain.

The Vienna Police Department didn't buy the proposal but let the art installation live on in museums and exhibits. If you happen visit any Vienna museums any time soon, you may just come across this humungous hat.
