Little Man’s Giant Shadow (4 pics)

Brazilian street artist Herbert Baglione created this beautiful and amazing installation at Winterlong Gallerie in Niort, France. The giant shadow, made from thousands of dead leaves, starts from a tiny silhouette of a man cutout from the wall. It's unknown whether or not Baglione was trying to express any kind of symbolism through this piece, leaving it up to the viewer to find his or her own meaning.
