Léo Caillard and Alexis Persani 's “Street Stone” Gives Louvre's Classical Sculpture Some Hip Threads

Artist on Tumblr, Behance, Facebook

"As if they didn’t already have the perfect physique… now the Louvre’s classical sculptures have flawless style as well. French photographer Léo Caillard teamed up with digital mastermind Alexis Persani to give these ancient sculptures a sartorial update with their “Street Stone Series.”

Caillard photographed the statues in the buff and then used his friends as models for the flannels, cuff jeans, and Ray Bans that the statues would wear. Persani then combined them to create a startlingly natural-looking series. Suddenly the way they lounge, look off into the distance and sport those flamboyant moustaches looks all too calculated. Then again, since the now-monochrome statues were originally brightly painted, maybe the images aren’t that far off base after all.

What do you think? Do you prefer your Louvre sculptures classical or trendy?

String Theory Bat Signal by Perspicere

Using mathematical precision, Perspicere creates three dimensional sculptures using white spring that appears to be shooting out of a black spray can, filling the negative space with woven geometric patterns. Who knew that the Bat-Signal was originally based off Commissioner’s Gordon secret love for crocheting (I knew, I just didn’t tell anybody).

My eyes burn with joy.

The detail/concept/execution of this work is FAN-tastic! Love it!

Elephant and Raven Pencil Sculptures by Diem Chau

Enraged by photos of endangered animals killed on safari, Diem crafted “The Last Elephant” to express the loneliness of being the last of your kind. Her other piece “Raven and the Sun” depicts the Native American myth of the Raven stealing the Sun and giving Light to the world.

So that’s how respiration works.
Tiny birds sing…and your lungs are filled with air!
I love it. I want one!

Super Mario Bros. 3 LEGO Airship by Baron von Brunk

Entitled “The Fireflower” and constructed with over 8,000 LEGO bricks and electrical components to light up the stained glass-esque “Fire Flower” insignia. The signature warp pipe that marks the end of the Airship levels is hollow and actually leads to the interior bridge and control room, which can be accessed via swinging barnyard door in the back. This guy officially won LEGO. Everyone else can just go home now. I’ll just be over here… shrinking myself down so I can board this mighty vessel and set sail for the skies (look out for the killer sun though!)

Those are hands? Holy Crap!

Hands! Hands, really? Hands and arms? HANDS!

This has GOT to be one of the most beautiful, creepy things I have ever seen in my life ever since Apple Skull. I mean, I can only imagine how unsettling it must be in real life.

Gorgeous. And it makes me twitch too!
