There’s Something #Incredibly #Deceiving About These #Photos… And When You Know It, HOLY COW.

There are some artists that just stand out from the rest. What makes Tom Eckert‘s art so special is its weightless quality (and something that’ll take you a few moments to notice). His pieces typically focus on a surreal scene that usually features cloths and linens. At first, you might not be impressed. When you realize what his work really is, you may be more taken aback. That’s because Tom is a sculptor, and every single one of these delicate pieces is made entirely out of wood.
