Intricate Sculptures Made of Bones by John Paul Azzopardi

Maltese artist John Paul Azzopardi creates delicate sculptures and complex structures made from bone that are simultaneously creepy and mesmerizing.

For his series, Azzopardi writes:
“Bone – is a collection of fossilized structures that explores the gentle temperance located within the constitution of sound, i.e. its very silent centre. The architectural relationship that oscillates back and forth from the simple and the complex to the living and the dead connects space and form, creating existential structures of interwoven silence. The death embedded in its form, its life. This might confront the spectator with a spectre, the simulacrum of itself that stalls, halts being something in its tracks.”
