All good things come to an end and the same thing goes up for this year’s Tour de France. The tour ends today, which is probably good news for all exhausted cyclists, but we can imagine fans would have liked the tour to continue for a little longer. But maybe this 3D artwork will help fans to continue their enjoyment.
The tour the France is always held in France, but the cyclists cross different countries as well, as the tour would otherwise be too short. However, if you’re living in Northern England’s North Yorkshire, you wouldn’t expect the tour to cross your town. Nevertheless, that is what happened this year and Niki Firmin therefore came up with the idea to commemorate the rare occasion using a 3D pen.
She is a frequent user of the 3Doodler and she uses the pen for curriculum projects for students. With her Tour de France project she wanted to do something for herself and the result is called ‘Le Tour De Yorkshire Carousel’. It uses three carefully 3Doodled (yes, that’s a verb now) wheels, a landscape and cyclists. The final result can be seen in the picture above and here below you can take a look at different elements of this piece of art.
