Candlestick Sculptures Mimic Human Profile

In the latest of sculpturist Brian Cox’s work, the artist is now turning people’s faces into real-life stainless steel object illusions.

These remind me of those once-popular pin-holders which you placed against your face and it moulded to your features - only these sculptures are actually classy, and fun!

At first, these may seem like your ordinary candlesticks, vases, goblets and other custom items, but when viewed against a person’s profile the illusion becomes apparent.

Cox has made these creations out of aluminum, steel and brass and only requires a profile picture in order to make this perfect gift that will certainly be novelty for years to come.
