These aren’t your average wooden sculptures. Paul Kaptein creates realistic and surreal sculptures made of wood that will surely amaze you. Based in Australia, he hand carves wood so brilliantly, it is as if it was moulded with clay.
From the mind-bending ”And in the endless sounds there came a pause” which is a seated monk with warped and distorted proportions, to “The archivist”, a realistic sculpture of a man’s arm holding a smartphone, his works are truly something to stare at.
