If you have 'Monet' to waste then you may want to buy this copy of Claude Monet’s White Water Lillies by US eco-artist Tom Deininger. His piece is total rubbish — literally. It’s made entirely from things people have thrown-away.

This version on Monet’s famous work is 8ft - study it carefully you can see SpongeBob, Teletubbies and of course SquarePants as well as skipping rope and other unwanted toys.

Deininger fishes all his materials out of bins to highlight just how much the world throws away. Other pieces include portrait of model Cindy Crawford made from cutlery and my personal favourite - a trout from syringes, cassettes and bottle tops.
