Aluminum sculpture, 'Good Read' (Peru)

Inspired by the power of books to "transport anyone to worlds where imagination has no limits," Peruvian artisan Luitpol handcrafts this aluminum sculpture of a harlequin immersed in a book. The lime green harlequin, laser cut from a pliable aluminum called Plastimetal, sits on a semi-circle of polished aluminum with an open book of shining aluminum in its hands. A green-rimmed purple heart on the harlequin's chest shows his love of reading.
