Bruno Walpoth’s Ethereal Lime Wood Carved Sculptures Are Quietly Magical
Mr. Walpoth’s sculptures are so amazing and life like the seem to have motion. Yet they are still.
Bruno Walpoth is one of the best wood carvers in the world, if you ask me. This Italian born artist has an astonishing ability to carve life into his wooden sculptures. Even though the sculptures are solid wood they give you a delicate and almost ethereal impression. The fragility and solitude of the figures give you the sensation of a lost soul within them.
If it were not for the tool marks on the surface, one would be compelled to believe in the presence of a ghost in these sculptures. Because that is what they remind you of. Ghosts. Trapped in a parallel world, which only you see.
