    those are hauntingly gorgeous

  • Magda

    These are sweet. Although I can imagine the creepiness of walking into a gallery with only floating blonde heads. Still would love to see them irl!

  • Ami

    Your right, there is a sense of creepiness and captivating at the same time. I like the simplistic display in the gallery, they look great. すごい。

  • these are gorgeous.. he said wood

  • Why are they all looking at me?

  • Rain

    These are incredible. I have such high respect for woodcarvers capable of creating something like this. There was a piece at the Seattle Art Museum that has been taken out but it was a carving of a head wrapped in fabric and it was SO GOOD. I feel bad because I totally forget the artists name but it actually looked like fabric until you got up close to it.

  • Wooooow, beautiful!

  • John

    That’s some of the very best sculpture I’ve seen these days!

  • Wow, seriously remarkable work. Thanks for sharing this, even if I do feel seriously inferior after looking at these.

  • Austin

    those are beautiful
