Wow → Stone art of Hirotoshi Itoh aka Jiyuseki


Hirotoshi Itoh graduated from Tokyo National Fine Arts University in 1982 and later went into his family business as a stonemason. He spent several years working with metal before turning his attention to stones. He utilizes stones found in a river bank near his home, and he creates sculptures that juxtapose the original shape and hardness of the material with surprising humor and texture. You can find more of his work on his Deviant Art page: http://jiyuseki.deviantart.com

Look at below Hirotoshi Itoh's amazing work!!! Yes, these are real rocks. He uses stone he finds in a nearby river bed to create humorous, whimsical and sometimes very disturbing sculptures.
