The intricate Tony Cragg Dice Sculptures prove that beauty is in the details.

The large elements and dominant forms resemble one heavy mass even though they are made of a large number of tiny fragments. Though the fragments are less noticeable from afar, they can be seen upon closer inspection. These impressively detailed sculptural forms by Tony Cragg are created from thousands of dice. Each individual die is stacked in order to form a soaring sculptural mosaic. The dice not only add texture to these distinctive pieces, but also give them a highly graphic black and white print. Because of their cubic shape, the dice used to create these sculpture are flexible and versatile for various shapes, even if slightly irregular.

The Tony Cragg Dice Sculptures were unveiled at FIAC 2011 in Paris, and are sure to keep wowing art lovers everywhere.
