Argentinean sculptor Adrián Villar Rojas creates enormous sculptural works that seem like remnants of a science fiction movie set, or bizarre moments from a surreal dream.
The awesome piece you see here is entitled My Family Dead (2009). Here a life-size blue whale, created by the artist, lies beached in the woods outside Ushuaia, Argentina. The stranded cetacean is pockmarked with tree stumps, which leaves the viewer wondering if it’s being slowly claimed by the forest or perhaps it’s a native resident. Beautiful and utterly awesome.
