Miniature figures are becoming more prominent in many artists' projects, as shown by the Watch Sculptures created by UK-born designer Dominic Wilcox. This set of five timepieces consists of little figures standing on the hands of a watch.

What makes these time tellers special is that the tiny toys tackle a different contemporary issues. Using vintage watches, Wilcox recreated various scenes like a protest and a soldier kiss. In his website, each piece has a message describing the whole scene. For example, for the soldier kiss titled Love and Protest 2011, Wilcox declares, "In these times of peaceful protest in the face of armed repression, a protester and soldier kiss."

A few of the watches by Dominic Wilcox will be exhibited at La Scatola Gallery until the 10th of January, 2012, and at the Phillips de Pury until January 31, 2012. Stats for Protesting Timepiece Sculptures Trending: Older & Average
