“Skeleton in the closet” is any old saying describe when people try to hide some secret from others. But how about finding skeleton of the human head, the spine or teeth directly into common wooden objects like axe, hanger, head border, frame… Kindly of creepy? Check these bizarre sculptures by Canadian artist Maskull Lasserre who deftly extracts the most delicate anatomical forms of humans and animals from common objects.
According to his website, his sculptures explore the “unexpected potential of the everyday and its associated structures of authority, class and value. Elements of nostalgia, allegory, humor, and the macabre are incorporated into works that induce strangeness in the familiar, and provoke uncertainty in the expected.”
I don’t really get the meaning behind those work. But I do admire Lasserre’s imagination, creativity, patience to detail and sculpting talents. Look at the skeleton of spine on axe, that must take tons of time to made. [source]
