The seven-time world champion recently joined hands with visual artist Daniel Arsham. The artist has made a sculpture of an eroded F1 helmet, and it is a magnificent blend of F1 and art. Further, the helmet is mainly made of selenite, quartz, and amethyst crystal erosions, Arsham’s signature. However, the artist also added a purple amethyst stone to the helmet because of Hamilton’s liking for this color.

But this helmet won’t be a showpiece that Hamilton will keep with himself. Instead, this one-of-a-kind helmet would be up for sale. The entire amount from the helmet’s sale would go into Hamilton’s foundation. Hamilton and Daniel wouldn’t keep a penny from this art piece’s sale into their own pockets. The sculpture is speculated to be revealed at the upcoming Monaco GP.
