When Lexus unveiled their new super car, the LF-A, at the Tokyo Motor Show last week, it did so with a replica sitting a few meters away from the original super car. And while replicas have become a common sight in auto shows, this particular sculpture of the LF-A is worth mentioning because it was made completely from ice.

The you-have-to-see-to-believe sculpture was the handiwork of renowned Japanese architect Scu Fujimoto and was created out of transparent acrylic boards, which was then polished to give it that ‘cold and icy’ look.
If pictures of the car don’t do justice to the intricate details Fujimoto painstakingly went through to create this sculpture, then we don’t know what else to say. The similarities between the real LF-A and the sculpture is remarkably uncanny and what’s even more mind-boggling is the fact that the

LF-A’s interior – and all the details that come with it – was also created in the sculpture version, down to the smallest of details.

Take our word for it; ‘amazing’ is an understatement.

This kind of artwork needs a lot of patience, attention and of course a talent to create this sculpture. Well if I’m going to create a sculpture like that, I will waste years to create a sculpture like that or maybe I will just give up because my patience is that short when it comes to sculpting.
