"Mount Recyclemore" sculpture depicts the problems of ewaste

A rather impressive political sculpture has been erected in Carbis Bay, Cornwall, to coincide with the G7 meeting taking place in Britain.

Dubbed "Mount Recyclemore", it is constructed entirely from dead batteries and other assorted e-waste, and channels the famous presidential scuplture at Mount Rushmore, South Dakota, but featuring the current G7 heads of state. 

Sculptor Joe Rush wants the installation to bring attention to the problems of disposing of electronic waste, and the need to make it more more reusable and recyclable.
