Sculptures of women carved from wooden blocks with glitch effects

Japanese crafter Yoshitoshi Kanemaki – featured previously – has an incredible talent when it comes to wood. He intricately chisels and carves miniature sculptures of women, often with glitch effects as though he's capturing them in a whirlwind of movement. As though he has taken a photograph that has failed to get that one portrait of a perfectly still face.

Showing multiple faces and expressions on the same figurine, his pieces reveal the many different sides to human beings. Crafted from camphor wood, some of his earlier work includes a creepy angle where he might introduce skeletons or parts of the human anatomy.

Based in Chiba, Japan, Yoshitoshi loves to share his process on Behance, revealing the many stages of his work. You can also find him on Facebook.
