Inspired by the cult classic 1971 film 'Le Mans' starring Steve McQueen, David O'Brien of Big and Small Mosaics has created a fabulous bust mosaic of McQueen's now iconic racing jacket. This high-octane piece of '70s racing cinema has been widely celebrated and recognised in both motorsports and Heuer collecting communities alike. Notably, McQueen wore the Heuer Monaco 1133B throughout the film alongside his white racing jacket, adorned with classic sponsors. The iconography of McQueen's 'Le Mans' aesthetic has been immortalised through various forms, but we haven't come across a concept as unique as this mosaic. Over forty hours of hard work oversaw the process. Firstly, the harrington jacket was covered entirely in plaster. Shards of ceramic were then painstakingly sourced and fitted to form the iconic designs sewn on the original, including both Heuer and Gulf logos as well as the flag of the United States. The end result is a life-sized, substantial and instantly recognisable bust attached to a robust stand and base. It takes a closer look to appreciate the talent and meticulous nature of this fine, one of one piece.
