Sculptures from Italy

Posted By on January 30, 2010

Gehard DemetzThese modern sculptures from lime wood are carved by Gehard Demetz from Selva Di Val Gardena, Italy.

Some of the expressions to characterize his art:
Sick, cruel and amazingly beautiful.
Delightfully creepy!
Incredible intensity, depth and provocation of feeling.
Sad and so beautiful!
