Mercedes Art Car - Overcoming Cancer with "Unchain My Love"

Mercedes Art Car - Overcoming Cancer with "Unchain My Love"

Artist Geraldine O. Lloyd is the creator of this beautiful 1975 Mercedes Benz called "Unchain My Love" which is also featured in Harrod Blank's Automorphosis. Her art car journey is very inspiring to me and especially those who have fought cancer for many years. She said that the reason she overcame cancer so many times is because she wanted to share her art car with others. Every time she was diagnosed with cancer she would work on her car and she would get through it one more time. The car is painted green with chain gold trim, and has a quite a few mannequins riding, also covered with ornate gold trim. Her car was recently featured at the Mercedes-Benz Museum, in Stuttgart, Germany, and the pictures taken by lindsey on her visit there, thank you!!!! Click on here name for more writings.
