Chevrolet has unveiled the Wheels & Wings - a Chevrolet tribute to the iconic Detroit Red Wings “Winged Wheel” logo sculpture that is now on display inside the brand’s entrance to the new Little Caesars Arena.

Measuring nine feet long and five feet high, the sculpture is an original work by Tomas Vitanovsky, a former professional motorcycle stuntman from the Czech Republic who now pieces together discarded parts to create intricate works of art ranging from animals to cars and robots.

The sculpture took a total of 700 hours for Vitanovsky to sketch, model and sculpt.

The Chevrolet vehicle components used to create the sculpture include shocks, brake calipers, rotors, gears, bearings, tie rods, brake pads, rear springs, exhaust pieces and a 1918 Chevrolet hubcap.

The center of the wheel is marked with a Chevrolet Silverado bowtie.

The sculpture is permanently on display inside the Chevrolet northeast entrance area, where fans and visitors to the new Little Caesars Arena will be able to admire it for years to come.

Chevrolet is the official vehicle of the all-new Little Caesars Arena and has been the official vehicle of the Detroit Red Wings since 2015.

Chevrolet is also the official vehicle of several other Ilitch companies, including the Detroit Tigers, the Fox Theatre and Olympia Entertainment.

Red Wings forward and NHL All-Star Dylan Larkin also serves as a Chevrolet brand ambassador.
