(Scroll down for video) A man has created amazing art out of paper.
Li Hongbo of China, creates sculptures that look like solid rock, but are indeed incredibly flexible.
At first glance, the statues and sculptures don’t look anything unusual.
However, Hongbo used more than 20,000 pieces of paper to create spectacular art sculptures.
Despite appearing as a solid piece, his amazing artwork can be stretched and twisted in all directions, before it springs back to its original form.
“My sculptures can be moved, stretched, twisted and bent, and in the end, it will go back to its intended form,” Hongbo said.
Hongbo said that it took hundreds of hours to perfect. It sometimes takes him months to finish one paper sculpture.
Hongbo said that he has to work on the center base so it is exactly where it is supposed to be because the structure is flexible, and if the center is not perfect it will tip over.
