Skull’, 2012 paper, glue, edition of 1 dimensions compounded 24 x 16 x 18 cm image still courtesy Dominik Mersch gallery

These highly detailed sculptural works by Chinese artist Li Hongbo appear to be made from ceramic at first glance, however, the works are actually created from thousands of layers of soft paper. Hongbo creates concertina like structures, that when settled, form the contours of an object – be it a skull, tree or person. These objects can be pulled and flexed to reveal the meticulous folding technique
used to create the work. via: designboom
