These Baby Head Sculptures Are Seriously Creepy

Artist Qixuan Lim, aka Qimmy Shimmy loves unicorns, poetry, reaction GIFs, and sculptures of dead babies. Though we respect her art, these babies are seriously creeping us out.

According to the artist, her venture into the world of sculpture was a happy accident. Working during the day as a graphic designer, art became her night-time passion, fueled by caffeine and dreams of imaginary worlds.

I think the baby heads are appealing to me because they carry with them a sense of vulnerability and fragility

Her work often centers on the transition between death and life, using babies and fairies as the subjects entering and exiting the world.

For example, a fetus crawls from an egg in an attempt to answer the age-old question of, "Where do babies come from?" while dead fairies are piled inside a copy of Peter Pan when children stop believing in them.

And those baby heads crammed into silver blister packs? Those are"Happy Pills", on hand for whenever you're feeling blue.

"I think the baby heads are appealing to me because they carry with them a sense of vulnerability and fragility, but at the same time looking quite morbid and discomforting," Lim says.

And in addition to their strong visual impact, these sculptures are also extremely convenient to make and carry. They're so small - whenever Lim needs a break from design, she brings out her clay scraps and watches new life evolve in her hands.

"I just fiddled around with it and came up with these little heads hidden in pistachio shells and my friends absolutely loved it and encouraged me to make more," Lim says.

We've got to hand it to you Qimmy Shimmy, these are some of the weirdest sculptures we've ever seen. Bravo.
