Yoshitoshi Kanemaki - Expressions
Japanese artist Yoshitoshi Kanemaki carves each of these life-sized figures from a single piece of wood. They are portrayed realistically, but Kanemaki gives his sculptures something quite unique - multiple faces. Every piece of his artwork features two or more expressions that are merged to make one form. To craft this work, Kanemaki carves and chips away at a large log. The bark is stripped from it, and he sketches the form onto the wood. From there, he transforms the material into a smooth surface that is able to capture the details of the human body.
