Crocheted Smart Car

    Newer Older

    Admiring the architecture in Rome we came across this Smart car which had been decorated with a natty, crocheted cover! Never seen anything like this before!

    ADDED 25/7/10 Found out that this was done by the artist Magda Sayeg for the Roman Arts Festival, “Il Lusso Essenziale.” Thanks for all the pointers!
