into the new world

breathtaking paper sculptures made by husband and wife team Allen and Patty Eckman.

the figures start as molded nudes made from pressing pulp into clay molds and then add layer upon layer of hand cut/sculpted/molded paper to them to create the detailed sculptures you see here.

i love the layers of detail to these figures: the bells wrapped around this dancers leg, the embossed patterns on his cuffs and even the quirky horse face on his staff.  let alone all of the amazingly detailed feathers.
