Human Skull Carved from Books

Maskull Lasserre has brought new life, or death in this case, to old computer manuals with his amazingly intricate sculpture of a human skull. Lasserre’s work explores “the unexpected potential of the everyday through allegories of value, expectation, and utility.”

The emergence of the skull figure from these books is definitely unexpected, yet seems appropriate at the same time. He pays great attention to detail, using exact proportions and replicating all features.

Although the skull is commonly associated with death, the piece itself is not gruesome. As you look through the series of his steps, it looks almost like he is uncovering the hidden skull within the block of books rather than creating it.
