Writing & Language

Looming above passersby in Lisbon, Portugal, a gigantic raccoon protrudes from the side of a building. A close look at this multimedia street sculpture reveals that the raccoon's eyes are made from discarded tires, its arms from dented bumpers, and its claws from assorted metal scraps. This larger-than-life 3-D street mural is the creation of Artur Bordalo, a Portuguese artist whose unusual animal sculptures made out of garbage are attracting international attention. That's exactly what Bordalo wants: his goal is to raise awareness about the destructive effects of excess consumerism. To that end, the broad appeal of the animal world serves Bordalo's purpose well. After the spectacle of the towering raccoon captures the interest of passersby, the sculpture's materials demand that viewers confront the waste products that are harming the natural world.
