On first look, these busts appear to be carved out of porcelain or perhaps fine white marble, but actually they are made of thousands of layers of paper glued together. With a single tug of his head, the sculpture's face stretches and distorts to reveal an accordion of paper layers. When returned to its resting state the sculpture reassumes its shape. This is the work of Beijing artist Li Hongbo, and his one-of-a-kind paper busts has been stunning audiences wherever they are displayed.

A book editor and designer, Li Hongbo became fascinated by traditional Chinese toys and festive decorations known as paper gourds made from glued layers of thin paper which can be stored flat but then opened to reveal a flower or other shape. He applied the same honeycomb-like paper structure to his sculptures creating forms that are both sturdy and flexible like a slinky.
