While matchsticks may have been popular to lend a light throughout history, few people favor them quite like 'Out of the Ashes' by Pei-San Ng does. This matchstick creation is the latest work of art from architecture and design marvel Pei-San Ng. Ng has expanded her work with matches to include both black and red-tipped matches, which helps her create even more dynamic pieces.
'Out of the Ashes' by Pei-San Ng is made to look like a Phoenix who has risen from fire. Ng told popular design website My Modern Metropolis that "this piece, made of matches, reminds us that we all have the potential to rise out of the low, the ashes and be reborn or to re-invent ourselves to be purposeful and determined."
