This Amazing VW Beetle Car-Art is Covered in 2 Million Glass Beads

pin
Over seven months, Two Mexicans (Francisco Bautista Carrillo and his daughter Kena Bautista) covered a VW Beetle in roughly 2 million tiny glass beads, creating gorgeous patterns and a vehicle the likes of which has never been seen before!

These artists belong to the indigenous Huichol people. Decorating items with intricate glass bead patterns is just one form of traditional Huichol art. As such, the design behind this amazing project was to spread the word about Huichol art, and about the Huichol people in general. The project is known as "Vochol," which is a portmanteau of "voch" (the Spanish word for a VW bug) and Huichol.

Result is awesome. Check out the video...
