Trans Am Totem

Trans Am Totem” is a 10-meter high, 11,340 kilogram sculpture of five cars stacked on top of a tree stump. Located in Vancouver, the art piece was created by local artist Marcus Bowcott from vehicles donated by a local scrapyard. The cars included in the sculpture are: a 700 series BMW, a Honda Civic, a Volkswagen Golf Mk1 Cabriolet, and a 1981 Pontiac Trans Am on the top. Bowcott had their engines, transmissions and drivetrains removed to reduce their weight, and then mounted them on top of a stump of an old-growth cedar tree, which was transported from southern Vancouver Island. At night, the partially crushed vehicles' headlights and tailights are illuminated by solar powered batteries.
