Skeletons Come to Life! – Sal Hernndez (10 photos)

When I think about skeletons, I usually associate them with death. What makes Sal Hernndez’s skeletons so special is how they are so alive. These extraordinary bronze sculptures are part of his "208 OSEOsidades" collection. Saul is from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico and his collection of skeletons are 8.27 inches (21 centimeters) in height and a 1:8 scale replica of real skeletons. All the sculptures are mounted on a base made of marble, onyx and stainless steel while the skeletons themselves are made of bronze with a wax of silver. Great work Sal!!
