Edinburgh-based artist Alasdair Thomson’s latest selection of sculptures, “The Identity Collection,” focuses on creating realistic versions of iconic items from marble. These items include Chanel’s iconic No.5 fragrance, a classic white shirt and a Nike Air Max 1. Thomson names his pieces simply, with the aforementioned shoe given the moniker “Tinker,” while the fragrance bottle is named “No. 5.”

The artist is clearly fan of the sportswear brand, having also carved a Nike SB Janoski. You can view more of Thomson’s works on his website. And, in related news, art and streetwear continue to collide in the latest Supreme release, with original works from Cindy Sherman.
