Airy Dresses Carved From Marble by Alasdair Thomson
These might look like ordinary clothes on hangers, but they’re actually marble statues chiseled by Edinburgh-based sculptor Alasdair Thomson for a series known as The Identity Collection.
Thomson’s friends donated their own clothes for the sculptor to recreate.
Using chisels and drills, the artist carves each garment from a heavy slab of stone that can weigh several tons.
Each “outfit” is made from the same material used for Michelangelo’s David—Carrera Marble.
Thomson says that he is “exploring the way fabric hangs and folds, and is attempting to capture that lightness and gracefulness in stone.”
