Wonder Wednesday: Lobster Anyone?

First off – thank you to everyone who came to the Art’s Fellowship meeting last night. It was a rich and convicting time. Thanks to everyone for being open and honest, and for asking tough questions. I hope we can keep the dialog going.

And now for …. lobster? I know that this is unusual, but when you realize this is handmade out of wood, well, you have to be amazed. The artists name is Ryosuke Otake and he designed this for a Japanese Department store exhibition. Making sculptures of animals out of wood that can realistically move is a Japanese tradition, though Otake had never attempted the realistic movement before this creation. Thanks to the Colossal blog for highlighting this to me this morning!

 

And a fun little picture from his Facebook page….
