Rome-based artist Edoardo Tresoldi created these massive mesh sculptures that replicate the human figure. The process requires an intricate system of sculpting wire mesh into humanistic figures.

The immaculate details in the mesh sculptures is mesmerizing. The creases in the clothing, the arrangement of hair and the poses are all flawlessly developed and executed. The sculptures are placed in ordinary locations such as docks, where they perch next to people who are about half the size. Each piece is created at the location where it will remain. This gives the sculptures a home and a familiarity of the time and place.

The human sculptures sometimes incorporate a unique lighting characteristic, which illuminates them with psychedelic blue lights. This artist has also created various sculptures from mesh wire such as buildings and animals.
