Shadow Sculpture by Kumi Yamashita

Japanese artist Kumi Yamashita has just constructed a new cherry wood sculpture that shows the shadow of a woman sitting in a chair. Straight on, and without any light, you’d think you’re just looking at plain pieces of wood. From the side view, however, you’ll notice the intricate carvings in the chair’s legs and back. When the light hits the sculpture just right, a ghostly figure emerges from the shadows.
