Recycled Cardboard

Tortoise: a sculpture made out of recycled cardboard paper boxes


Tortoises live a long life, and this sculpture took almost 9 months to complete. First, I make a paste using cardboard paper and glue. Then, I sculpt in layers, waiting for it to dry, to continue.

The most critical part is that the pulp brings back the wood´s DNA to the sculpture, making it look and feel like wood. Tortoises are patient and peaceful animals.

This sculpture is h 20cm x w 23cm x l 32cm. I left the sculpture in its natural cardboard color.
