Creativity Around the World

A collection of pieces that caught my eye as having something extra about them.

Called ‘The Subtle Stone Eater’ by Jonas Guitarrez, it was inspired by the sound of the waves washing over the rocks. The artist made his black shiny belly of obsidian, a black volcanic glass found inland where the volcanoes are.
