This Michelangelo Classical Style Sculpture Boasts New Looks

Artist Caspar Berger has done a series of self-portraits, including a classical style David bust infused with dozens of impressions of his own face. This stunning bronze sculpture takes an extremely creative approach to self-portraits.

What’s really fantastic about this sculpture is that it blends classical art with surreal art -- two extremely different styles. There’s also something very bold about doing a self-portrait on top of a well-known face. Michelangelo’s David portrays a perfect man and Berger’s self portraits look almost like blemishes were laid out on this famous figure.

Caspar Berger has combined his face with a popular piece of classical style art, so one can’t help but wonder what kind of a statement he might be trying to make. Maybe he wants his face to live on forever like the statue of David.
