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.”
