Million Crystal Body
It takes one million Swarovski crystals to completely cover the human body - assuming that the body you want to cover is that of a 20-year old model named Chantal. Million Crystal Body is an auction organized by eBay specialist Marion von Kuczkowski in which the million 2-mm crystals covering Chantal are sold for €1 each. As more of Chantal is revealed, her photos will be updated on the website.
Some might call this a global art project and some might call it something else, but it certainly is an interesting idea. The last stones in the auction will not be sold at the fixed €1 price, but will be auctioned via eBay. The proceeds of those final bids will go to an as-yet-unnamed charity. The person who wins the last crystal will have it personally delivered anywhere in the world by Chantal herself.
