This Guy Crafts Weird And Wonderful Skulls Fit For A King

These strange sculptures by Alain Bellino fuse the human form with strange materials such as ornate metals and old computer chips. His work looks something like what you would expect to find in an ancient burial tomb for a long forgotten king.

Bellino has been working with metal since he was a child helping his father in his workshop. He learned the secrets of gold and silver plating as well as bronze restoration.

After several years of training, Bellino began making his own unconventional pieces. He drew inspiration from Renaissance "Vanitas", he began making pieces that were strikingly beautiful and strange.

"I got special inspiration from the Renaissance period," Bellino says. "Vanitas are one of my favourite themes, typical of classical scenes. In my work of re-directing and re-assembling, which is both iconoclast and highly rigorous from a formal point of view, at the crossroads between past and future, i try to rehabilitate the ornamentation."
