Not What It Seems....

I saw this picture circulating on Pinterest the other is the work of Dominic Wilcox who uses plastic soldiers and other objects fused together with heat to make these incredible bowls.

I took this picture a few years ago at Maison et Objet in Paris where I was able to see "War Bowl" in person.

From a distance, the bowl looked like red coral or something else amorphic, but looking closer the melted soldiers and weapons are obvious.

The whole exhibit was a play on what is expected with a little twist.....

Sometimes we think we know what we are going to see in an image...but upon closer examination, we see something different.

Check out the work of Dominic Wilcox and see the world through a different perspective!

Dominic Wilcox's work shows great wit, and the bell glass on the watch faces is truly inspired!
