Iron Man and Other Brilliant Cardboard Sculptures by Kai-Xiang Xhong

20-year-old Taiwanese student Kai-Xiang Xhong has the unique hobby of constructing astonishingly intricate and realistic works of art from cardboard. Recently, Xhong used the humble medium to build a life-size replication of Iron Man that looks every bit like the suit from the movies. Each detail is reproduced perfectly, right down to the glowing chest plate and arms. Between school and other activities, it took Xhong nearly a year to complete the cardboard sculpture, but the results are so impressive that even Tony Stark would be jealous.

Iron Man is only one of the latest of Xhong’s brilliant cardboard creations. In his spare time, he constructs a variety of creatures that are equally as intricate and lifelike, from a miniature Optimus Prime to a glowing Godzilla to huge T-rex skulls. Although Xhong prefers to maintain the original texture and color of cardboard, he builds his sculptures as realistically as possible in every other aspect, patiently cutting and assembling each small component with care and precision.
