These are just a few of many wonderful pieces by Italian sculptor Matteo Pugliese who lives and works in Milan. His bronze sculptures of men, often made from multiple components, appear to be trapped in the vertical space of gallery walls. My Star Wars-addled brain is reminded of Hans Solo encased in carbonite, though I find these aesthetically much more pleasing. (via job’s wife)
