La “Belle époque” by Michael Kalish along the Hudon River

This glorious 14-foot tall three dimensional sculpture, unveiled in the Hudson River Park a few weeks ago, has for name la “Belle époque” and was created by the American artist Michael Kalish for Perrier-Jouet.
Here’s a nice video showing the creation of the artwork. I also suggest you take a look at the artist’s website as it shows his work very well. Finally, I’ve found this CBS report explaining how Kalish, who mainly works with metal, has been using old license plates to create portraits – including a series of presidents – and other artworks picturing his own take on the United States' culture.
