Oh wow, those are bullets? Talk about recycling.

Wow that is really beautiful. I hope it is well secured---I wouldn't want it to fall on anyone.

That first image in particular is so 'striking'.

Better to see them in a Museum...
The CCB has interesting chandeliers pieces!!

That is one fine photograph, technically perfect. I saw a sculpture recently that was a model of a cathedral made from bullets. Similar effect.

My missing earing! (lol) This is pretty wild! I love it- what great find JM-

Is it really called the "Death Star" or is that your idea? Either way, very clever! Again, interesting material to use in art - wow JM, tampons and bullets - what's next?! :)

The sculptures you have been showing are wonderful. Aptly named.

Symbolic lethal rays... Faster than a speeding work of art.

A much better use of bullets that what they are usually used for. It does have a certain "Star Trek" look to it.

Steffe said...

I sure hope you counted them all!

Kate said...

That image really hits you between the eyes. Amazing!

You could have a 'bang-up' good time with that.

Oh my gosh!!!

Oi JM. Infelizmente no Brasil há muita corrupção. Mesmo havendo organismos de proteção ambiental, muitos estão propensos a serem comprados por estes mega-empresários. Ainda não sei de nenhum abaixo assinado na net, vou pesquisar, talvez crie um, e aí eu te aviso.
Obrigada!

I guess (and hope!) they are dummy cartridges, so the only death would be if this falls on someone's head!

Lois said...

That is so cool!

Death star? Hmmmmm, interesting...
This brings to my mind that a few days ago NASA recorded the largest eruption on the Sun, a flame that had a 800.000 km tongue! Can you believe that?
God bless you!
