Native American Paper Sculptures Allen and Patty Eckman

You may have seen this going around as an email but I thought I might pop it in here just for it's relationship with paper and out of interest.
Sculptures of Native American scenes made out of paper by Allen and Patty Eckman



These stunningly detailed sculptures may only be made from paper - but they are being snapped up by art fans for tens of thousands of pounds. The intricate creations depict Native American scenes and took up to 11 months to make using a specially formulated paper



Husband and wife team Allen and Patty Eckman put paper pulp into clay moulds and pressurise it to remove the water



The hard, lightweight pieces are then removed and the couple painstakingly add detailed finishings with a wide range of tools



They have been making the creations since 1987 at their home studio, in South Dakota, America, and have racked up a whopping 3 million selling the works of art



For more picture please go to
The UK telegraph link as there is a total of 16. I just thought you might enjoy these and get some inspiration from them
