    those are hauntingly gorgeous

    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!

    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。

    Why are they all looking at me?

    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.
