This Gorgeous Cement Mixer Looks Like a Gothic Cathedral

From its pointed arches to its laser-cut steel hinting at stained glass, every bit of Wim Delvoye's Gothic series feels like incredibly detailed Gothic architecture, even though said architecture takes the shape of, say, cement mixers, bulldozers, dump trucks, and other vehicles normally found on construction sites. Today My Modern Met features a smattering of works from the ongoing series, pointing out that the Belgian artist's "meticulously crafted creations feature the silhouettes of these commonly brute vehicles as delicately designed works of art. [...] There is something very recognizable in their construction, almost like they're imitating a working class citizen dressed in fine attire." Another look, below.
