Recycling, Picasso-style.

Technically, turning bike handlebars and seats into something of a bull was Picasso’s idea first. But Austrian designer Andreas Scheiger’s brilliant interpretation of Picasso’s Tête de Taureau shows how all sorts of modern bike parts can become gorgeously functional.

Scheiger has created a whole series of these bicycle hunting trophies, which can hold anything from umbrellas to hats to more bikes. A few pre-made versions are for sale in his online shop, but he also shows those who are so inclined how he made them here.
