These sculptures are utterly breathtaking. Wood sculptor Randall Rosenthal has treaded on new ground, becoming a modern master of a timeless trade.
Each piece is painstakingly carved from a single hunk of Vermont white pine and, thanks to an amazing eye for detail, you could easily mistake them for the real thing. What’s even more amazing is that Rosenthal didn’t even use models or photographs for inspiration; each piece was sculpted entirely from memory or an image in his mind, which is astounding when you look at the detail on the newspaper sculpts.
They truly are masterful illusions, and they really deserve the time to look at. If you’re as intrigued as we are by the sculptor that is Randall Rosenthal, be sure to check out more of his pieces in his gallery.
