Made from 1,300 punching bags, 6.5 miles (10.46 km) of stainless steel cable, and 2,500 pounds (1,134kg) of aluminum pipe, this 22-foot high (6.7 m) art installation of the legendary Muhammad Ali can be spotted at LA’s Nokia Plaza. Designed by artist Michael Kalish, with structural supports by architectural firm Oyler Wu, this larger than life portrait is certain to draw attention.
