Futebol, by Brazilian Nelson Leirner, is a sculptural installation that uses hundreds of figurines to create the masses that attend the most international of all sports: the soccer game. The teams are made up of maneki neko ceramics, the lucky cats that can be found in Asian shops around the world and the spectators come from groups as diverse as the Roman cavalry, Indian chiefs and Buddhas. Nice comment on the global expansion of mass culture.

Artist: Nelson Leirner
