Parastone Mouseion collection:
With the greatest respect for the original works of art the designers of the Paratsone studios in The Netherlands have brought to live famous paintings by lifting images out of the flat surface.
The sculpture on the left is from Hiëronymus Bosch’s The Last Judgment.
I couldn’t find any information about their cost, but I’m betting they’re not cheap.
Kinetic Sculpture by David C. Roy:
All of my sculptures are spring driven escapement mechanisms. Nothing is hidden. Each part of one of my sculptures is essential to the operation of the whole. The relative motion of these interacting parts produce the interesting, some say “whimsical and dynamic” patterns of motion. I am always searching for simple ways to produce complex, yet understandable, visual, and at times auditory, patterns.
Most of the animations of his designs are in Flash, but I found some Quicktime ones.
They appear to average around $1,000.
This is the coolest sand sculpture I’ve ever seen:
It’s featured at Grow A Brain.
