Yoda Sculpture and Candlesticks

Bangkok, Thailand

Unknown

Scrap Metal

This set comes from a street vendor in Bangkok, Thailand. Specialising in the moulding of recycled metals and parts, this vendor has woven in discarded spark plugs, washers, plaited scraps and sockets into an exquisitely crafted Yoda from the Star Wars series, complemented by the coiled and intricate candlesticks. A longtime leader in the street vendor art sector on a global scale, Thailand sees its share of the metalcraft sphere highlighted time and again through the artists’ vision and talent, all brought to bear in the streets of Bangkok. The pieces themselves are timeless and unique per artist, as is evident in the attention to detail paid to each line in Yoda’s expression, tunic, and lightsaber.
