Yoshimasa Tsuchiya

Shhhhh! Don't scare it away...


*whispers* Aren't these beautiful sculptures by Japanese artist Yoshimasa Tsuchiya just breath taking?


Kirins, unicorns, bakus and fawns of Japanese folklore look so life-like you half expect them to start moving...


With slender limbs and delicate features, they have an ethereal beauty befitting of such mythical beings.


And yet, you sense there is something slightly wild and dangerous too.


What makes them even more amazing to me is that they are formed and carved out of solid blocks of wood!






It would be so wonderful to see these in an exhibition, I could spend hours daydreaming...


You can see more in his online portfolio.
