Amazing Lifelike Animal Sculptures by José Suris IV

Amazing Lifelike Animal Sculptures

It's pretty incredible to look at these images and think for a moment that they may possibly be made of real fur or, in the case of the goldfish, scales. However, they are entirely made up of hundreds of tiny pieces of paper carefully layered on top of one another to give this effect, stunning right?

Brooklyn-based artist José Suris IV has created these masterpieces, where he uses various papers, styrofoam, wirefoam and paperclay. With the use of several different colors, he mimics the lifelike quality and texture of these animals into these amazing paper sculptures. So amazing to have such talent coming out of the area I live in!
