Fun Find: Haroshi Dunk SB

Haroshi used one of his old skateboard sneakers, a pair of Dunks to create a work of art. Haroshi makes his art pieces recycling old used skateboards. The Dunk, was built from the actual used skateboards from NIKE’s pro riders (P-ROD, LANCE MOUNTAIN, ERIC KOSTON, CORY KENNEDY, JUSTIN BROCK, BRIAN ANDERSON, DARYL ANGEL, DANIEL SHIMIZU, ELISSA STEAMER, CHET CHILDRESS, GRANT TAYLOR, HUNTER MURAIRA), as well as his own. In this piece there are hidden messages throughout the sneaker, one being "kick kick" and the other "sole in soul". Sole in Soul is not visible to the naked eye and fact an x-ray scan has to be used. Haroshi's work has me in awe. I have never seen a piece that I had to second guess the work, wondering if it was an actual sneaker or wood. BEAUTIFUL....Thoughts Lovies?
