Art and it's Inspiration

'People Thing Zero' 2009, cedar, oil paint, nails: sculpture by Georg Baelitz
And the Easter Island statue

Caroline Burstein introduced us, in the web studio, to Luxury Culture. It's a really stylised but informative platform for lifestyle, art, fashion and everything in between. Funnily enough, I stumbled across these excavation images last night of the Moai statues on Easter Island (who'd have though they were would be so large and undiscovered!) and this morning Luxury Culture included a feature on the artist Georg Baselitz, who creates these painted wood sculptures, very similar to the ancient stone personalities of Easter Island. Bit of a coincidence.

The BBC also featured a while back, how similar statues in Chile got their hats. Very interesting stuff.
