Helmick and Schechter Sculpture

The creative mind of others astounds me sometimes. I wish I had it in me.

This one is called "Jurisprudents," made with over 3,000 small head sculptures:

Using traditional methods, the artists sculpted twelve life-size portraits of ordinary American citizens-representing twelve members of a jury. The heads were then laser-scanned, rapid-prototyped at small scale, cast in pewter in large quantities, finished with a hand-rubbed patina, and precisely affixed to hundreds of suspended cables.
