Carved Book Landscapes by Guy Laramée Artist Guy Laramee has recently completed a number of new sculptural works where he transforms thick tomes into incredible topographical features including mountains, caves, volcanoes, and even water. Many of the works are part of a new project titled Guan Yin, a series of work dedicated to the forces that enable individuals to endure grief and pain, or in his words “the mysterious forces thanks to which we can traverse ordeals.”
The following images look like an optical illusion or a Photoshop trickery. But closer inspection reveals that the upper half isn’t mysteriously floating in air but cleverly connected to the bottom half of the statue. These unusual Travelers statues were designed by French sculptor Bruno Catalano.
