'Fat Monkey' Sculpture Is Made From 10,000 Pairs Of Flip Flops


“Macaco Gordo” — or “The Fat Monkey” in English — is a 45-foot long, florescent-colored monkey that resides in the middle of a park in Sao Paolo, Brazil. This monkey statue is different, though, because he isn’t made from bronze, stone, or even plaster of paris — he’s made from 10,000 pairs of flip flops. The installation comes from the mind of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, who enlisted the help of local art students to create the sculpture.
