Sculptures Built Inside Old TVs

Watching these TVs, don’t expect the scene to change, ever. The view in these old Television sets are intricate sculptures crafted by Chinese artist Zhang Xiangxi. Quite a few times, there is a Television inside the television sculpture, which makes us want to think that the little television in turn should also host a sculpture in its innards. Okay, I’m a few years late for the Inception joke, and it isn’t really that good. Checkout the sculptures though, they are lovely and the detail is astonishing.

Magnificent Realistic Sculptures Made Out of Wood

Artist Tom Eckert carves and colors sculptures out of wood with such perfection that they might easily pass off as “real” objects rather than sculptures of said objects.

Pokemon Drawn In Tim Burton’s Style

Things we know all too well change drastically if we change the style they are illustrated in.

Nike Sneakers Carved From Chocolate

Apparently a fan of Nike Air Max, designer Joost Goudriaan created the shoes out of delicious, delicious chocolate. Details on the chocolate sneakers are impressive; you can even see the thread and sewing that would go with the shoes. Goudriaan has made two variants of the shoes, one from milk chocolate and the other from white chocolate with a pure chocolate sole. Perhaps it is the color, but the details are much better visible in the brown chocolate shoe. The sculptures are a series of ten unique variations, each at Air Max size 10.
