Sculptures of Native American scenes

Sculptures of Native American scenes made out of paper by Allen and Patty Eckman ...

These stunningly detailed sculptures may only be made from paper - but they are being snapped up by art fans for tens of thousands of pounds. The intricate creations depict Native American scenes and took up to 11 months to make using a specially formulated paper

They put paper pulp into clay moulds and pressurise it to remove the water. The hard, lightweight pieces are then removed and the couple painstakingly add detailed finishings with a wide range of tools

They have been making the creations since 1987 at their home studio, in South Dakota, America.

They're beautifully done. Striking detail. Being made of paper, I wonder how they age?
