Yoshitoshi Kanemaki's memento morae

Japanese sculptor Yoshitoshi Kanemak chisels strange, life-sized twins from blocks of wood. This bony conjoined brother is the least of the horrors. Born in Chiba Prefecture in 1972, he graduated from Tama Art University in 1999. His current exhibit, featuring these works, is "mementomori", at the Elsa Art Gallery in Taipei, Taiwan.
