This Artist Makes Incredible Sculptures From Useless, Old Books

These sculptures by Long-Bin Chen look like they've been carved from wood or stone.

But if you look a little closer, you'll notice something odd. The sculptures aren't made from natural material at all. Instead, they're carved out of paper from old books and catalogs.

Chen's work speaks about waste and recycling. By using something as useless as a phone book, he breathes new life into trash and paper waste. Inanimate objects are carved into sculptures of cultural icons or swirling towers, giving them a second chance.
