Nagato Iwasaki Creates Beautiful Driftwood Sculptures That Look Like Groot

nagato driftwood sculptures feat
These driftwood sculptures by Nagato Iwasaki are something out of a fairy tale. It’s hard to say if these sculptures are creepy or entrancing. I suppose it depends on the lighting. Just imagine wandering through the woods at night and bumping into one of these things. You’d scream and pee your pants, for sure.
The sculptures with all their body parts remind me of Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. But the ones without heads would surely induce nightmares.
Take a look at these fantastically creepy, yet oddly whimsical driftwood sculptures. Let use know what you think in the comments section.

Other than groot. The sculptures also look like aliens walking around Earth just looking for friends

Modeling the driftwood to be in the right shape you need, especially in the face area is no easy task.

But Nagato managed to perfectly capture the expression of us humans with his bent wood sculptures

I like how in this piece you can actually see the process because the sculpture is not really finished and has no head
