Elliot Arkin’s Ai Weiwei ‘#1/1,000,000,000′ Statue

by Matt Ho   | 

Elliott Arkin has designed a cast marble figurine of Ai Weiwei that depicts him flipping the bird in reference to the Chinese artist’s series where he gives the one finger salute to monuments such as the White House and Tianamen Square. It’s also worth noting that the title of the piece #1/1,000,000,000 is a nod to the population of China.

Each figure has been signed and numbered at the base, and every purchase will see a portion of the proceeds benefit Amnesty International. Available now at Exhibition A.
