Emotion is something many people are becoming more and more comfortable sharing, yet that has almost always been the case when it comes to the world of art; these emotional plasticine sculptures are the perfect example. Although they might look like animations at first glance, these sculptures are physical creations that depict a lot of the strife people feel on any given day.

Created by Irma Gruenholz, an artist based in Madrid, Spain, the emotional plasticine sculptures specifically depict three scenes. The first one shows a couple caught in a tangled web as though visualizing their confusion and mix of feelings. The other two sculptures focus on their individual pain and suffering as a result of such problems in their relationship.
