The amazing Dice sculptures of Tony Cragg
From a distance, it’s difficult to tell that these abstract sculptures are even more impressive than they first appear. As viewers near each piece, it quickly becomes evident that the large, organic shapes are completely covered with dice. In the collection, Germany-based artist Anthony Cragg used only small, black and white cubes to construct the surface of each unique form. He did not find himself limited to the hard, square edges, and used thousands of the objects to create a variety of mesmerizing curves that mimic nature. ( Quote from mymodernmet.com )
