“Big Rig Jig” Giant Truck Sculpture

Big Rig Jig Giant Truck Sculpture

Big Rig Jig, creative sculpture designed by Mike Ross, is built from two repurposed 18-wheeler tanker trucks.

The sculpture utilizes two decommissioned trucks, referencing a global oil industry at the nexus of our world’s political, social, and environmental systems. By repurposing these symbolically rich objects, the artist conveys his admiration for and anxiety over humanity’s power.
