Beautiful Giant Sculptures Support Power Lines With Style

September 21st, 2016|

I came across these amazing photos of designs for electricity pylons / sculptures in Iceland. The giant reindeer and humanoid electricity pylons were inspired by the idea of brightening up the ugly utilities which stretch across Iceland’s immense volcanic landscape.
