New Steel Wire Sculpture Illusion by Gavin Worth


Cairo, Egypt-based artist Gavin Worth has come out with a brand new sculpture illusion. Recently, he traveled to Las Cruces, New Mexico where he created this work about hope. Using 125 steel bars that stood over 6 feet high, he bent them by hand until he reached his desired result.

Called And Light Fell On Her Face Through Heavy Darkness, the piece seems like a clump of wires until you look at it from just the right angle. Out of a looming black wave of steel, a beautiful face emerges. Make sure to watch the video, below, to see her really come alive.
