The Amazing Paper Sculptures of Li Hongbo

Li Hongbo is a remarkable sculpture. Looking at her work, you’ll probably wonder how she accomplished such feats with only plaster.

The answer: it’s not plaster. It’s paper.

And no, I don’t mean paper mâché. I mean paper, stacked one layer on top of another, carved by hand!

Thousands of sheets of paper were meticulously glued together and then carved into these shapes. When lifted, the paper can be seen in its true form.

To see more of Hongbo’s work in action, check out the video below.
