Crania Anatomica Filigre - Joshua Harker
It should come as no surprise that we are posting, yet again, a skull related art project. There is something that draws us to the image and sculpture of the human skull, and have found kindred spirits on the interweb as the previous skull posts have been extremely popular. Because of all this love for all things skull, we give you our favourite thus far, Crania Anatomica Filigre by Joshua Harker. Joshua has been a traditional sketch style artist and sculptor for twenty years, drawing what he calls "tangles," some of which being so delicate that they have been near impossible to create in sculpture. In what Josh describes as a "perfect storm" of software, technology and materials engineering, he now has the ability to create these wonderful tangles three dimensionally. The sculpture is only in its prototype phase, but Josh is using kickstarter to get the project off the ground. Go here and learn a little something about the process, see some more pics, and donate a little to the cause...or even pre-order yourself one.
