It Is What It…Isn’t?

November 5, 2009





What you believe you are seeing (when viewing the work above) is not really what it seems to be at all. What I mean is…yes it IS a sculpture of a skull, but no it is not made of styrofoam.
Artist/Sculpter Fabio Viale has painstakingly created each of these fantastic pieces of art using…wait for it…marble.
Yes, all of the above sculptures, from the impossible tires to the simplicity of a popped kernel of corn, are made from hard, cold, white and black marble.
Don’t believe me? Click his name above and have a look at more.

    As a visual artist, I can only begin to imagine the painstaking time, skill and attention to detail that it took to make these. Unbelievable. Bravo.

    Why is this cool? These are like riding a jet-ski… neat for about 20 seconds then you wonder why you spent $6 grand for the thing.
