Beijing based artist, book designer and editor Li Hongbo makes what appear to be porcelain sculptures of heads, busts and human forms, but aren’t.

Inspired by traditional Chinese paper gourd toys which expand out from flat structures into three dimensional honeycombs, he applies the same glued paper technique but in far more sophisticated detail.

More at the website of Dominik Mersch Gallery where Li’s work exhibited recently.
