Tiny Human Sculptures with Immensly Exaggerated Features

Born in Argentina, visual artist Gerardo Feldstein builds sculptures featuring wacky human figures with disproportionately large hands or feet. Made out of wire and wood, the pieces portray strangely intriguing moments when perspective is distorted.

Through his work, Feldstein challenges his viewers to make sense of what we see. The tiny headed figures with exaggerated features do all kinds of everyday things like point, climb ropes, and reach for things. It's a wonder how these bizarre little guys maintain any sort of balance. Feldstein says, “I see the sculpture as an extension of myself, my characters do, dramatize things I want and I can do.”
