…CrystalArt covered a Mini in American?

American Iron

It took four artists six months to finish American Iron, a Mini that “features over one-million Swarovski crystals in 50 different shades of color to represent the 50 states”. Scenes include The Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, The White House, The American Flag, and a Bald Eagle, with the final project valued at over one million dollars. Considering, the chosen base car though, I don’t exactly think it’s going to be an easy sell (a strange choice to begin with, because the Mini is decidedly British, which is definitely not American). If you want to see it in person, American Iron will be displayed outside of the Jacob Javits Center at the 2007 New York City Auto Show.
