Photos Capture Dueling Porcelain Figurines the Moment They Shatter on the Ground

Photographer Martin Klimas has a knack for capturing things that happen in a moment's time. We recently admired his images of shattered flower vases, and now we're turning our attention towards his photos of broken porcelain figurines. From a height of three meters, these objects were dropped on the ground, and the sound of their shattering tripped the shutter release. What results are incredible displays of chaotic beauty.

We see these small statuettes bursting into countless pieces. Tiny shards, giant cracks, and severed limbs are all visible thanks to Kilmas’ high-speed photography. There's a palpable energy in these collisions that stands in stark contrast to them as inanimate objects. Now, it's as if these characters have come alive and are in the midst of a powerful battle.
