Here’s yet another of the wonderful sculptures at the St. Louis City Garden.  This behemoth by artist Erwin Wurm is simply titled, “Big Suit”.  Despite it’s soft, pastel colors, (and the fact there’s no dude in the suit) this bad boy is heavy.  That’s probably why aluminum never really caught as a textile for garments.  Here’s the stats:

Material: Painted Aluminum
Dimensions: 300 x 130 x 73 cm (118 x 51 x 29 in) 
Height: Nearly 10 feet
Shirt Size 144 Long
Estimated Weight: 1 short ton

Conclusion: The Big Suit weighs more than me.
