Elaborate decorative pieces that represent imaginary creatures. Inspired by an artists dream when he fell ill, these sculptures are brightly-painted with intricate patterns and frequently featured wings, horns, tails, fierce teeth, and bulgy eyes.

 

Originally crafted in papier mache, these are the result of dedicated carvings in wood.
