Ultra-realistic wood carvings of street garbage

Untitled

The above is actually a carved and painted wood sculpture of garbage that artist Tom Pfannerstill found on the street, one of his many "From The Street" pieces that you can see on his site and below.

"The works in the series “From the Street” are carefully crafted, carved and painted, trompe l’oeil depictions of everyday common objects," Pfannerstill writers. "On the back of each piece is a description of where and when I found this ‘gift from the street’ and so, they provide a record that mirrors my movements through time and space."
