PillBug

Created by Jakarta-based artist Ichwan Noor, this totally spherical 1953 VW Type 1 is completely mesmerizing. Apparently part of an ongoing series of ball and cube-shaped sculptures, this yellow beetle now takes up far less real estate, but is at risk of rolling out of the gallery.

  1. Ferdinand had a tough time at first; several of his early designs for the new KDF-wagen were balled up and thrown out in frustration.

  2. What's the point of using such an early car? Couldn't the art have same effect using a more common 60s-70s Beetle?
