Cool Paper Sculptures

Sculptures of Native American Scenes made out of Paper
by Allen and Patty Eckman


These stunningly detailed sculptures may only be made from paper, but they are being
snapped up by art fans for tens of thousands of pounds. The intricate creations depict
Native American scenes and took up to 11 months to make using a specially formulated paper.




Husband and wife team Allen and Patty Eckman put paper
pulp into clay moulds and pressurize it to remove the water.




The hard, lightweight pieces are then removed and the couple
painstakingly add detailed finishings with a wide range of tools.




They have been making the creations since 1987 at their home studio, in South
Dakota, America, and have racked up a whopping 3 million selling the works of art.
