Dutch artist Rosa Verloop has extended her body of work with these "Nylon Sculptures". The highly textural pieces capitalize on the key medium used, stockings, which is tucked and molded to create a distinctly human-like figure. The flesh-colored panty hose fortify the anthropomorphic qualities of the work, manipulated in an organic fashion with drawing pins to create something strangely exotic.
Designer and illustrator Dan Beckemeyer created this wonderful exploration of anatomy by first illustrating a skeletal structure, then stitching a cardiovascular system, and finally adding hand-felted muscle mass. Beautiful work.
