Artists Allen and Patty Eckman create stunningly beautiful and highly detailed sculptures of Native American people out of cast paper using a method they invented and patented many years ago.

“In 1987," notes Popgive, "Allen Eckman stumbled onto cast paper as a fine art medium and instantly recognized the beauty and possibilities for creating high detail, strong, acid free, pure, fine art sculpture.”

Implications - The two artists have perfected this medium of art and create truly astonishing pieces. Some of their works can be seen in the featured gallery and include detailed Native American people dancing, riding horses and dressed in intricately beautiful outfits. When you look at the sculptures it is hard to believe that they are made out of paper.
