Ukrainian artist Nazar Bilyk created this stunning 6-foot tall sculpture called Rain using fiberglass and metal. A huge raindrop stands suspended on the figure's face as he looks up toward the sky - making one wonder if he is being overtaken by nature or is reveling in its power and beauty. In either case, the work represents how man must interact with the outside forces that surround him.
New Skin is part of a series of tree bark figures that are meant to represent some of the individual characteristics shared by trees and humans. New Skin represents the common characteristic of both trees and humans naturally exfoliating their skin. The sculpture is made entirely from birch and hickory shag bark. Both are trees that naturally shed their bark or 'skin.'
