Massive 3,500 Smartphone Pegasus Sculpture

Huawei, a global information and communications technology solutions provider, made a grand statement recently outside of the entrance to the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona. To promote their newest product, the Ascend D Quad, the company commissioned London's Machine Shop to create a sculpture of the mythical winged horse Pegasus out of 3,500 smartphones. After 720 hours of work, the monumental sculpture was unveiled and made quite the statement about the company's strong presence in the smartphone market.

The frame of the sculpture is constructed out of 3,500 supporting rods that together total about 2,000 feet and the phones are attached to the frame with sticky pads. The piece stands 19 feet tall with a wingspan of 16 feet and the clear film was left on the screens to add to the radiance of the sculpture.
