Paris-born artist Cedric Le Borgne creates these illuminated human figures (Les Voyageurs) and deer (La Biche) using delicately sculpted chicken wire. The figures are often installed in highly visible public places, suspended in the air in parks or in busy urban centers. Via his website:

Cédric Le Borgne invites everyone to view daily life in a fresh way, to rise up, to dream. By abolishing barriers, his work of exploring spaces is sensitive, his poetry subtly interacts with each place it comments upon. From sculptures made of chicken wire to photo or video, from perennial installations to spontaneous performance, from street-art to web-art, his work is free of formal constraints.

Le Borgne’s work is currently on display along the South Bailey in Durham, England as part of Durham Lumiere, the UK’s largest light festival. (via dark silence in suburbia)
